Who We Are

We are the 1st Shireoaks Scout Group, part of the Scout Association, and we are based in Shireoaks a village, Near Worksop, in North Nottinghamshire.

The Scout group has a long history in the village and has run a very successful Cub Pack for many years, please check out our history page, this is a work in progress if you are a former member or leader we would love to hear from you.

We are wanting to grow, we get many enquiries from young people wishing to join, however, we are limited by the number of adult Leaders we have, can you help us? More information for volunteers can be found by clicking the Scout Association link.

We can offer support and full training, for an informal chat please call Paul on 07890 626684

Scouting started in the UK, in 1907, Shireoaks has a long history of Scouting in the village. Scouts in the UK comprises of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Scout Network. This covers the age range of 6 to 25 years. Our UK HQ is at Gilwell Park, located in Epping Forest. Scouting is where young people make new friends, have amazing adventures, and learn new skills (SkillsForLife). It is important that you know that everyone is welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Regardless of your child’s physical ability, there is an adventure in Scouting out there waiting for them. And we’ll help them find it.
