About Us

Welcome to the 6th Whitley Bay (St Mary’s) Scout Group

We have a Beaver, Cub and Scout section which all meet weekly at the Church Hall on Claremont Gardens, Whitley Bay. Our group is coordinated and led by our Group Scout Leader (GSL) Scott Blackett who is assisted by our Group Executive Committee and Leadership Team.
