Thinking of joining ?


So, you’re thinking about becoming a Beaver (6 – 8 years), Cub (8 – 10.5 years) or Scout (10.5 – 14 years)? Here is a brief introduction.

What is Scouting?

We’re The Scouts, and we’re all about Skills for Life. We’re part of an inclusive, diverse and youth-shaped uniformed movement that sees over 380,000 young people take part in activities every year. Each of our young people engage in a range of activities throughout the year, all geared towards a programme that enables them to have lots of fun, earn badges and awards, and learn lots of skills they can use.

Mission Statement of the Scout Association

The aim of The Scouts is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.

We do this by providing an enjoyable, attractive and balanced programme of activities, based on the Scout Promise and Law, and guided by adult leadership.

What That Means To Us

Everything we do promotes personal development, personal confidence and self respect, team working and team leadership skills – Whilst being FUN!!!

What do we do ?

Beavers – ages 6 to 8:

Meetings include a mix of team games, craft and skills-based activities (i.e. wildlife, safety skills, outdoor skills). Our Beavers also take part in indoor and outdoor weekends away and events and competitions with other Beaver Scouts from around the Romford area.

Cubs – ages 8 to 10:

Cub meetings build on the skills learnt in Beavers, adding more life and leadership skills. Our Cubs enjoy a varied programme of activities, with badges ranging from Artist to Scientist! Each of our Cubs have the chance to vote on the badge they complete for the term and our leaders work hard so there is something for everyone. Like the Beavers, Cubs have the opportunity to attend around two camps (indoors and outdoors) per year, plus district sleepovers and competitions.

Scouts – ages 10 1/2 to 14:

Scout meetings build on the skills learnt in Cubs, and engage in lots more events and competitions. They have lots of fun, learning life and leadership skills and how to make a difference in their community. Our Scouts engage in lots of camping trips throughout the year, attending week long events like jamborees which attract other Scouts from around the world!

The 21st Romford Family: 

While each section has it’s own team of leaders, 21st Romford is a great big family. Beavers, Cubs and Scouts regularly meet up for joint camps and events, as well as for district events and the annual Church carol concert.

Who are the Leaders ?

All of our leaders are volunteers who give up their time every week because they love Scouting and seeing our young people achieve. Our leaders are:
