Hanwell Methodist Church sponsors the 5th Hanwell Scout Group which consists of three
the Beavers (6 - 7 years),
the Cubs (8 - 10 years),
and the Scouts (11+ years of age).
The group runs a broad range of activities each term, and takes part in District
events. The leaders encourage all of their young people to compete for badges, and
to take part in team events.
Recent activities have included: sailing, canoeing, swimming, skating, athletics,
cross-country running, 5-a-side football, orienteering, climbing, etc.
The scout leaders arrange regular camps for Cubs and Scouts, and day-trips for Beavers.
Over the last few years successful camps have been run in the Isle of Wight and the
New Forest as well as many camps nearer home.
The Scouts, Cubs and Beavers (which are open to both boys and girls) meet on a Thursday
evening in the halls behind the Church.
News has it that our Scout group will be celebrating its centenary in 2016. It is
hoped to plan some special events nearer the time.
If you want to know more then you can also contact one of our Church Stewards who
will put you in touch with the relevant Leader or turn up to one of their meetings
on a Thursday evening.
Remember that the group may only meet in school term times.
Scouting is all about fun, challenge and adventure
We are the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6 to
25 year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure
and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing
that sets Scouts apart.

John Stanton also got his Queen’s Scout award presented.
