Welcome to the website of 1st Lydiate Scout Group, based in Lydiate, Merseyside. The Group is thriving with more than 160 Young Members and 25 Adult Leaders, supported by 10 Young Leaders in training along with a 20 strong Management Committee of Adult Volunteers actively engaged in Fundraising, Financial Management and Administration for the Group.
We run all four of the official Scouting Sections: Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, each with their own dedicated Leadership Team. For further details on each Section please follow the appropriate links on Section pages.
The aims of our website are twofold: to give the visitor a flavour of Scouting with 1st Lydiate and beyond, and to act as a News & Resource Centre for all of our members. The site will grow as more information is added, so check back regularly for updates.
We hope that you find what you are looking for here or at least a link to it when it exists somewhere else. If not, please use the relevant contact details located around the site to request further information or suggest site improvements.
Spring is Here!
After what seems like a long and very wet Winter, then lighter nights, some balmy Spring Days, and suddenly all is well in the World ! Well maybe not quite as simple as that, but it is no surprise to any of us, that as the nights draw out we get more energised towards the outdoors, but its safe to say that for many in the Group it hasn’t been a case of hiding away indoors either.
With two camps already completed and a third imminent as I write, then the outdoor aspect of Scouting in Lydiate continues to be as strong as ever, as does the numerous day activities for our younger sections including the takeover of Blackpool Pleasure Beach and the visits to Disney on Ice, all a reflection that our membership is as strong as ever too.
Our recent Annual Census showing again, that our overall membership has grown by 10%, and we have welcomed 4 new Leaders to our Team, as well as embracing the help and support of our Parents Committee again to raise the funds necessary to replace our Heating System, and invest over £900 in our Mini Bus.
A fantastic start to the year, and one which I hope everyone will join in, to enjoy the activities and events the Group offers.
