Pegasus Explorer Scouts is part of Lilford District and Greater Manchester West Scout County.
We were set up 2011 as we had a group of scouts who were to old for their Scout Troop but refused to travel to the nearest Explorer Scout Unit. So in response to their request for their own unit Pegasus was set up. We still have some of these Scouts with us who are now training to become adult leaders.
Initial we were based at the scout hut in Ellesmere Street but rapidly outgrew the facilities available there. We are now based with another of our feeder groups 4th Tyldesley in their scout hut behind Holy Family Church.
We are open to young people of any background, sex, race or religion aged between 14 and 18 years. We have 18 to 25 who are leaders / network scouts and over 25 year olds who are leaders.
Have a look through our pages and you will see the wide range of activities we get involved including charity and community work, hiking, international expeditions, music, sailing, shooting, archery, canoeing, camping, DofE and so much more. If you like what you see come and have a chat with us.
We are entirely self-funding and always looking for help from local business or volunteers.
Yours In Scouting
Explorer Scout Leader
