We are Ellesmere District Scouts, one of the 8 Scout Districts in the Greater Manchester West County. There are 8 Scout Groups, 2 Explorer Units, 1 Young Leader Unit and a Scout Network. Our District covers Eccles, Cadishead, Irlam, Walkden, Worsley and Little Hulton. Each week over 350 young people in our local community aged between 4 to 25 are involved in Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Network

We have over 100 adult volunteers who help to run the District and its Groups, providing fun activities for our young people while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.

Everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Regardless of your child’s physical ability – there’s a Scout adventure out there waiting for them. And we’ll help them find it.


Scouts are do-ers and give-it-a-go-ers. Yes, we go camping, hiking, swimming, abseiling, cycling and canoeing. But we also get to hang out with our friends every week – having fun, playing games, working in a team and taking on new challenges.

Every week we give 4 to 25 year olds the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life.
