The Scouts of the 19th Newcastle Scouts Group meet at St Gabriel’s church on a Wednesday from 8.00 pm to 9.45 pm in the choir vestry. For more information please contact Ross McDonald, Leader in Charge, on 0191 2402353.
The Scout section is the direct descendant of the original Scout Patrols which formed The Scout Association of the United Kingdom in 1908. The section is open to both boys and girls between the ages of 10½-14 years, and are now formed into local Scout Troops which in turn form part of a Scout Group. The Scout section follows on from the Cub Pack (8-10½ year olds) and Scouts will move onto the Explorer Scout section at the age of 14.
