Marple is the home of a thriving scouting community with two Beaver colonies, four Cub-Scout packs, two Scout Troops, two Explorer Groups and a Network Unit.

It’s been the home of scouting since 1908, and though there have been many changes over the years, we like to try to stick to the traditions of Scouting where we can.

We have a large Scout-hut in the centre of Marple (currently unavailable for bookings until we have the kitchen re-fitted) which is well-used by all sorts of groups in the day, and by the Scouts / Cubs in the evenings.

You can help support the Scout Group by visiting the annual Marple Gang Show, which we take part in with the Marple Girl Guides (and which is the only non-county show to achieve Red-Necker fame!), going down to the Brabyns bonfire, or buying plants through us in Spring.

Cubs: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday (18:30 / 18:45 – 20:00)
