ONE Programme Logo
So with the bulk of the annual camps finished, good luck to Rovers in Wales and Scotland, our attention is turning to the new ONE Programme and the change in Sections.

As part of the pilot scheme I believe that the Group has benefited by having greater youth participation in the programme planning and I am looking forward to seeing this even better enhanced with the ONE Programme. Well done to all the Scouters and Scouts (Trackers to Rovers) for all their hard work and making it a success for our Group.

The biggest changes in the ONE Programme are the names and age ranges. The names have not changed from the previous programme but are different from the Pilot Programme Section names. The names and Age Ranges for the ONE Programme are as follows:

Section Age

Beaver Scouts

6, 7, 8

Cub Scouts

9, 10, 11


12, 13, 14, 15

Venture Scouts

15, 16, 17

Rover Scouts

18, 19, 20


It is Group policy that any six year old wanting to join the Group must be in 1st Class in the September of the Scouting year they join (September to July).

Everybody at this stage should know their new section and meeting night, check with your Scouters if you do not. Potential Patrol Leaders have been identified and invited, Cubs to Venture Scouts, to the Group Training day, hopefully 11 September if available.

If you have any question or comments on the ONE Programme please post here and someone will post a reply.
