Welcome to the

8th Bolton East

Shouting for Scouting in Breightmet!

We are based in Breightmet as part of the Bolton Moorland District and as part of the Scout association we are proud to be very active and take part in all sorts of activities throughout the year.

So most of us will have heard of Scouting but what is it?

We believe in preparing young people with skills for life.  Every week we give almost half a million 6-25 year olds in the UK the skills they need for school, college, university,  job interviews, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: in short the skills they need for life with a load of fun. 

Did you know loads of famous people have learnt skills in scouting? 

TV personalities, prime ministers, Olympians / sports stars Astronauts as well as so many more. Why not have a look at a couple here?


There’s a Scout Adventure out there waiting for everyone.
