About us

The 1st Neilston Scout Group has provided Scouting activities for young people in the Neilston area for many years, and now offers activities for both girls and boys from the ages of 6 to 14 on various nights of the week. If you think a young person you know would be interested in taking part in adventurous activities, then please feel free to explore the site and get in touch using the Contact Us form.

 Sections / Leaders

Young people joining Scouts will join one of four sections, depending on their age. Each of the sections delivers a varied programme of activities to suit the age range of the members. All of the sections are open to both girls and boys.

  • Beavers are 6 to 8 years. 
  • Cubs are aged from 8 to 10½ years. 
  • Scouts are aged from 10½ to 14 years. 

On reaching the age of 16, members can also stay involved with the movement as a member of one of our Explorer Units.

Hall Rental

The 1st Neilston Scout & Community Hall is open to members of the public to use at an hourly fee. The hall is a fairly new addition to the community following the last building burning down. The building hosts a games hall, storage, a kitchen and disabled access.

If you are interested in renting the hall for parties or clubs please contact us.
