Dominic Sommerville, scout leader, said: “We provide weekly activities for young people ranging from arts and crafts to sports, first aid and much more. We also take part in residential trips all year round including camping, expeditions and jamborees where young people are able to take part in activities including climbing, water sports, archery, there is something for every young person.”
