The 11th South Leeds (St Luke’s) Scout group has been re formed and will be meeting at St Luke’s Church, Malvern Road, Holbeck during term time.

The Beaver Scout Section is opening for girls and boys aged 6 to 8 years on Monday 11 January and will meet Mondays from 5:45pm to 7pm.

The Cub Scout Section, for girls and boys aged 8 to 10 years, will be opening in April and meet on Mondays from 7 pm to 8.30 pm. A Scout Troop for children aged 10 to 14 is planned for September.

The Group Executive Committee Chairman, Neville Jackson said, “It’s fantastic to see Scouting return to the area, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, after the group folded over 10 years ago”

The Group Scout Leader, John McKee, said:

“The team have worked really hard to get an exciting program ready for each Section’s first term. Scouts are driven by the youngsters that attend and we are all looking forward to working with our young people to help them develop their group.”

Scouting is open to boys and girls and people from all faiths or none. It is based on an ethos of learning by doing, making choices and taking responsibility; and undertaking new and challenging activities.
