About Us

Who Are We?

3rd Newbury Scout Group offers the benefits of scouting to children aged 6 – 14 from across Newbury and the surrounding area. The Group is split up into three sections: A Beaver Colony (age 6-8), a Cub Pack (age 8-10½) and a Scout Troop (called “Brydges Troop”) (age 10½-14). Young people age 14+ become members of the District Explorer Scouting.

What Are We For?

The Scout Association has a clear purpose. It is: “To help young people achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.”

Scouting is concerned with all young people without regard to origin, nationality, race, creed, physical or mental ability, gender, political or religious belief or sexual status.

Scouting is not a youth club, but an educational movement with a clear purpose. The Promise and Law, if applied in daily life, can make our world a better place. Adults in Scouting should help young people to apply the principles in their everyday lives.
