82nd Newcastle Now
The group meets in the church hall of St. James’ & St. Basil’s church in Fenham, each Friday evening during term times where all sections, Beavers Cubs and Scouts and Jigsaw meet on the same night. Scouts and Jigsaw meeting at the same time, sometimes working together and other nights separately.
Jigsaw are the latest addition to the group, joining us in December 2014. The section are a group of Autistic young people who thoroughly enjoy their Scouting, and are active participants in the group.
It is a lively, active, inclusive and thriving group, with consistently good numbers attending and usually has a waiting list for the Beaver section.
Whilst the group meets in an Anglican Church hall and has close links with the church it is not a sponsored group and has young people and adults from a range of faiths and cultures. We have members who are Catholic, Muslim, Anglican and Hindu as well as those who would not ascribe themselves any faith. All are welcome.
