About Us…

Pennine is a District based in Greater Manchester North County

Pennine District is a collection of 21 Scout Groups across the townships of Rochdale, Middleton, Heywood and are a part of the Greater Manchester North Scout County.

Over 1,000 young people are experiencing fun and adventure every week in the 21 groups that make up the Pennine Scout District

We have a wealth of scouting experience in the 400 adult volunteers who’s dedication to the groups is fantastic. Without their dedication week on week we would not be able to provide the varied programme of activities and achieve the development potential in our young people.

We also have our own Scout Camp Site, Ashworth Valley, which is situated and set in 48 acres of beautiful countryside with many activities for all ages.

We welcome both young people and adults who are interested in joining us.  It’s a life changing adventure so explore the website and then click on join us to be part of the team.

All groups run a very exciting and refreshing meetings, including camps, water activities, climbing, survival skills along with confidence and building social skills are just a very small dose of what the leaders put into their planning.

We’re open to everyone and anyone. We put in a huge welcome to any new members including both boys and girls from any background or faith.

We hope you find this website useful. Any questions or queries, please contact: dc@pennine.gmnscouts.org.uk
