Through fun, friendship, challenge and adventure we empower girls to find their voice, inspiring them to discover the best in themselves and to make a positive difference in their community.

Our Rainbow group meets every Thursday during term-time, at 5.45-6.30 in the church. We are a friendly, welcoming group for girls aged 4-7 years. The children enjoy a range of activities, including arts and crafts, cooking, games, earning badges and trips out. We currently have no waiting list, so feel free to come and join us on a Thursday night!


At 5th Preston, we are an adventurous group, and we like to camp, hike and spend time outdoors. From age 6 to 18, our young people are encouraged to explore and have fun both in and out of doors.

We are a Group proud of our past, confident of the present and looking forward to the future: Scouting started at 5th Preston (St Cuthbert’s) way back in 1912 so in 2012 we celebrated 100 years – making us the oldest group in Preston.

We are the youngest section in the Scout Movement and, as a Colony we try to encourage fun and friendship. At 5th Preston Beavers, we try to have fun at the same time as learning something new. Our aim is for every Beaver Scout to receive the prestigious Chief Scout’s Bronze Award before moving up to the Cub Section. Our Beavers are often occupied with crafts and games (as well as the programme challenges). We take part in many District organised events including Fun days, Excursions and organised Scouting events. We hold at least one indoor Sleepover a year and give the young people the opportunity to camp outdoors too. Link 5th Preston - Beavers
