Scouting in New Costessey
Scouts in New Costessey have been around at the 27th Norwich for over 80 years now, with the group being registered on 4th July 1934 and meeting at our hall on Gunton Lane for longer than anyone can remember! We’re part of the Northern Norwich Scout District and have close ties with other local groups in the district, such as 16th Norwich in Old Costessey.
27th Norwich is constantly growing in number, with more members joining every year for the past decade. As with most scout groups, we have a Beaver Scout section (ages 6 to 8), a Cub Scout section (ages 8 to 10½) and a Scout section (ages 10½ to 14). The Nelson’s Victory Explorers also meet at our hall and provide adventurous activities for those aged 14 to 18.
Beavers: Fridays between 5:30pm and 7:00pm
Cubs: Mondays between 6:30pm and 8:00pm
Scouts: Fridays between 7:30pm and 9:30pm
Adults in Scouting
Of course the fun doesn’t stop when you reach 18! Scouting in New Costessey is provided by a great team of dedicated volunteer leaders, helpers and supporters. Leaders run the weekly sectional meetings, sharing the load between them and helpers. Our supporters include parents, helpers and members of the Group Executive Committee.
The Group Executive Committee make sure that we have enough money to run our activities and have a nice, safe and accessible building to hold our meetings in. Other people offer to share specific individual skills with the Beavers, Cubs or Scouts so that our members can gain specific badges.
In other words, whatever skills you have or however much of your time you can spare, there is a way for you to get involved in scouting!
