Having started as an 8 year old Cub, I now run Thornton’s Scout Section – it’s the most rewarding hobby I’ve ever had! It’s certainly not easy running a programme for 30 Scouts, however with the support of the rest of the leadership team we take the rough with the smooth. Sure, things might not always go according to plan, but they’re usually the stories that the kids talk about for years on end – “remember when..”!

Scouts to me is about learning new life skills that we can use in the future. For example I’ve learnt how to stay safe and look after myself whilst taking part in loads of different activities!
Beth, aged 12
Watermelon Rugby was really fun, one of the best games I’ve played in Scouts! I was also the first Scout in Thornton to be invested on a beach!
Jessica, age 11
My Scouting highlight was fossil hunting at Runswick Bay!
Sam, age 13
Scouts can travel around the world to different places and have new experiences. I went to Holland and took part in the Carnival!
