3rd Heald Green Scout Group was formed in 1966 as a ‘closed’ group for the boys of St Catherine’s Church who were not able to join 1st Heald Green; an Open Group which met where the Life Church is, or 2nd Heald Green (Methodist Church) because they were full with long waiting lists.
Hundreds of houses were built in Heald Green in that era and there along with ‘a baby boom’ which meant more young people wanted to join Scouting locally. The Group has always maintained a close relationship with the church and benefitted from being able to use the hall for meetings and storage of equipment.
Beavers started in 1992. The Group has always taken part in church activities including church parades; the Sunday nearest St George’s Day (23rd April) to renew their Promise, Harvest, Remembrance and toy service in December.
