12th Barnsley (Monk Bretton) Air Scout Group has been delivering Scouting for over 75 Years in our area of Barnsley.
We have 3 Sections:
Beavers (6- 8 Years) Tuesday Nights - 18:30-20:00
Cubs (8-10½ Years) Harriers Monday Nights - 18:30-20:00
Tornado's Wednesday Nights -18:30-20:00
Scouts (10½- 14 Years) Typhoons Thursday Nights - 19:00-21:00
There's a Triple celebration for the group this year, well for at least the Group Scout Leader anyway. as South Yorkshire County is 75 Years old, 12th Barnsley itself is 80 years old and the Group Scout Leader has been in scouting 30 years, and believes he's the oldest Beaver (pre dating Beaver Scouts) in South Yorkshire. This has yet to be confirmed.
The group is hoping to hold some events as a celebration of their 80 years later on in the year.

A Brief History
Formed in 1933 12th Barnsley Monk Bretton Air Scout Group has provided scouting to the young people of Monk Bretton for over 75 years although a group did exist previously under a different number designation. the group has been very active in the community in many different ways.
The group has met in a variety of locations first meeting in the church school - now Redferns club in Burton Road. it then moved to St Pauls Church Hall before using the cramped space of the park keeper's cottage. then it was a wartime warden's post in High Street before meeting around a snooker table in the miners hall (now gone). The first permanent scout centre was built in Rotherham Road followed by the present one after an arson attack on the original on the early 90's During the rebuild the group returned to the chuch hall - now the MENCAP centre on Burton Road, returning to their rebuilt scout centre in 1993. the group has seen many of its members go on to various roles in their professional lives and community including sports, emergency, public and voluntary services.
