Next Scout Leaders meeting:

There are 3 Explorer units who meet weekly, all of which run different programmes. The Coast Unit are based on Manor Road in Tynemouth, North Shields are based at Hawkey’s Lane and the Wallsend Unit meet at Howdon Hub on Denbigh Avenue. D of E and Top Award Expeditions are predominantly run by the Wallsend Unit, but members of all three Units are welcome to get involved with this. Coast and Wallsend meet on a Wednesday from 7 – 9pm and North Shields meet at the same time but on a Friday. There is also a Young Leader Unit which is focused particularly on supporting the training of the YLs in order that they can gain their Young Leader belt. They meet once a month.

All of the young people have a choice when it comes to which Unit they opt for – there’s absolutely no harm in attending a meeting at all three before making a decision. There’s also no limitation on how many Units they attend, which means they could be members of all of the Units if they wish!
