Welcome to 9th Penwortham (St Leonards) Scout Group

Don't forget to put all your used papers in our skip! We know it is easier to put it in the box for the bin men to deal with, but money made from recycled paper helps to keep down subscriptions ad boosts the groups funds, so we are asking everyone to make the effort!

9th Penwortham Scout Hut

9th Pen. is a dynamic and friendly scout group that would love to hear from you. The group was founded in April, 1978, and we moved into our own hut about 10 years later, adjacent to Middleforth Primary School. To see what we get up to, visit this page, which lists some recent events, with links to photos.

Subscriptions are just 25 per term, with discounts for large families. You can find us here on Google Maps, our hut is sited in the north west corner of Middleforth Primary School's field (to the right of the school as you look at it from the road). For more information, please click here and send us a message!

"I like the sleep-overs at Spitfires, they are very fun and there are lots of activities in one. There are fabulous games and incredible badges like woodwork where we made plant pots and wooden planes. There are fantastic Christmas parties when family can come along too. Amazing family camps are also one of the great things about Spitfires. We play games and one of our favourites is dodgeball. We play that quite a lot! " - Dominic, age 10
