3rd Davyhulme (Lostock) Scout Group, one of the largest in the district with over 100 members, offers unparalleled facilities through the Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and the Band. The group is open to boys and girls for 6yr-25yr whilst the Band is open to any member of the Scout & Guide Movement within the County. 

The Group was born out of St Bartholomew's Presbyterian Church, which was formed by people who worked at the Metropolitan-Vickers factory in Trafford Park during World War II. Metro-Vickers was, at that time, building the Lancaster Bomber.

The date of the groups registration was the 17th May 1943 which coincidentally is also the day that the newly formed 617 Squadron of the R.A.F., using the top secret weapon of the time, Barns Wallis's bouncing bomb, returned from its raid on the German Dams.

Some of the Group's past leaders have been members of Lancaster Crews and the parents and grandparents of todays members worked at Metro-Vickers and Ford building the Lancaster and its engines. Roy Chadwick was the chief designer of the Lancaster Bomber and he lived in Urmston
(Westbourne Road). He served his apprenticeship at British Westinghouse (later Metro Vickers) with George Hicks and Lesley Naylor. George was our first Group Scout Leader and Lesley was the District Commissioner for a good number of years. All three worked in the drawing office together. Our Explorer Scout section take their name from the Lancaster 's Rolls Royce engine, the "Merlin".

All of this contributes to why the group badge depicts a Lancaster Bomber over the Scout Arrowhead Badge.

Permission was given by the 617 Squadron R.A.F. The Bomber Association and by British Aerospace to use the Lancaster and the associated names for our emblem.


Dear Parents /Carers.

                                                            Waiting List 2016

Sunday the 24th April was our annual St George’s Day Parade, where all the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Leaders in the District got together to celebrate Scouting’s Patron Saint. The sight of so many young people in this great organisation encourages more to want to join.

 At the moment both our Cub packs are full, we have 20 moving up to Scouts over the next few months which will mean that the numbers in the Scout troop will be close to the maximum size the present leadership team can deal with. The space left in the Cub packs will be filled by Beavers. It looks likely that the only sure way of joining our Group will be from our waiting list. In spite of being full there may be opportunities when spaces become available.

 Claire Field, Assistant Group Scout Leader will be looking after the list and will be able to give some idea of when your child will be able to join. She will also keep the Beaver list ensuring those that have been on the waiting list get a space when they reach 6 years old. We have a number of under sixes on the list (brothers, sisters, great grandson etc. of existing members). If you would like to add a name, please contact Claire on 07462266153 or clfield73@yahoo.co.uk.

 What we are trying to do is to keep a continuity of membership and hopefully be able to give all who go on the list a place in the best Scout Group in the World.

 Yours in Scouting

 Jim Field

Group Scout Leader
