Welcome to the 1st Whitchurch Scout Group, Cardiff.  We are a popular and active Scout Group which believes in promoting the aim of the scout association: 
"to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities."
The group is made up from three sections:
Beaver Scouts (6-8 years)
Cub Scouts (8-10½ years)
Scouts (10½-14 years)


We are coeducation so all members both boys and girls work together to meet the aims of Scouting through a single programme.

Scout Post Dates
Post setup - Sunday 29th November 
We will be setting up the scouthall for scout post.  We are desperate for parents to come along to the scouthall and help.  We will meet at 2pm and aim to finish by 4pm or earlier depending how many people turn up.

Scout Post Sorting - 2nd December
Will start on the evening of Wednesday 2nd December.

It is important that children (of any age) attending the sort at any time, are accompanied by an adult as the leadership team are not available to supervise or ensure they get home safely and finish times for the sort will vary depending on workload

Last day of posting - 7th December
The last day to post your cards is Monday 7th December.  If you cant get to a postbox drop them in at the hall.

Collect WALKS & tidy hall - 11TH December
Walks can be collected on Friday 11th December from the scouthall.
We also need some parents available to help tidy the post stuff, the more people who can help the quicker we will be
