Join Us

We welcome membership enquiries to join our thriving 1st St Margarets Scout Group.

We centrally manage all requests for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts via our waiting list. Your young person can join our waiting list by clicking here.

Please note that places are rarely available in Cubs and Scouts as places are often taken by Beavers progressing through our sections.

1st St Margarets is a very popular Group, which means we cannot always offer a place to every young person who wants to join us. Therefore we have a transparent admissions policy that defines the criteria that we use when offering places.

Places are offered to young people in the following order of priority:

  • If a parent or carer is a uniformed leader or committee member within the Group (or pledges to become one)
  • If the young person is already invested into the Scout Association and is transferring because they have moved to the area
  • If they have a sibling who is already a member of the Group
  • How long they have spent on the Group waiting list
  • We use our discretion to ensure there is a balanced aged distribution in each Group
  • Your young person must be at least 5.5 years old to join our waiting list

Should you wish to enquire about uniform leader or committee member opportunities please email us here.
