Newman Scout Group

The Newman Scout Group is open to both boys and girls aged 6-14 years and meets during school term as follows:

Joey Scouts (Ages 6-8 years)  Thursdays 4:30pm-5:30pm
Cub Scouts (Ages 7.5-11 years) Thursdays 6pm-7:30pm
Scouts (Ages 10.5-15 years)   Wednesdays 6:30pm-8:30pm

Scouts provides a fun and challenging environment for each child to "learn by doing". To do this, we need  volunteers to fill a wide range of roles, such as uniformed leader (training provided), non-uniformed committee member as well as other tasks including transport, cooking, quartermaster, etc. All we need is adults who like to have fun and be involved in the world's largest youth movement.

If you or your child would be interested in joining Newman Scouts, please contact Group Leader Suzy Oldham at
