Beavers, Cubs and Scouts at St Mary’s


If you think Scouting’s just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised. It’s how Richard Branson, Barack Obama and David Beckham got their start in life.

St Mary’s is the home of the 6th Whitley Bay Scout Group and in a typical year we help over 80 young people from the ages of 6 to 14 to enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors, interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Scouting is split into three age groups from 6 years to 8 years we have Beaver Scouts, 8 years to 10 ½ years we have cub scouts and from 10 ½ years to 14 years we have scouts.

Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced programme of activities, events and experiences, based around subject areas we call Programme Zones.

The zones vary slightly depending on which of our sections the young person is in, but they cover a huge range of activities, from outdoor and physical pursuits to community involvement, creative expression and learning about the wider world.

We meet one evening per week depending on the section, and the annual cost per year for a young person is £72 (paid monthly by direct debit). This includes insurance and weekly activity costs although trips away and camps are extra to this.

For more information please contact Scott Blackett, Acting Group Scout Leader on 07866 432052 or email: or check out our website at


Guiding is for everyone

'Guiding enables girls and young women to develop their potential and to make a difference to the world. We welcome everyone who shares our values of openness, tolerance, respect and democracy, regardless of their personal circumstances or background.


Rainbows (5-7) (meet Thursdays 4.45-5.45pm and Friday's from 5.15-6.15pm) in the church hall.

Rainbows follow a programme called the Rainbow Jigsaw. Being a Rainbow is all about learning, developing self-confidence, building friendships and, of course, having lots of fun!

Brownies (7 – 10) (meet Monday's 6.00 - 7.30pm and Thursday's 6.00 - 7.15pm)

Brownies follow a programme called Brownie Adventure. They can participate in a wide range of activities at their regular meetings, and at special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays.

Guides (10 – 14) (meet Thursday's 7.30 - 9.30pm)

Being a Guide encourages girls to develop by undertaking challenges and pushing the boundaries of their experience.

At St Mary’s we currently have two Rainbow Units, two Brownie Units and one Guide Unit. We are also very lucky to have a large team of dedicated leaders and regular helpers.
