Cubs (boys and girls from 8-10 years old) meets on Tuesday evenings term times between 6pm and 8pm. They have a wide variety of challenges, games and new skills, all leading to gaining badges. We promote independence through fun and adventure. Cubs go camping and have sleepovers. They take part in events with other packs, such as sports – Football or Dodgeball or work towards badges such as local knowledge. At 10 ½ years Cubs start to move to Scouts.
Beavers (boys and girls 6-8years old) meets on Monday evenings term times between 5.30pm and 6.45pm. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends.
The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old, and can move to Cubs between age 7½ and 8½. Contact: Doreen on email@example.com
Ark Drama 2000 are a youth theatre group, based at Kingsnorth Parish Church, Ashford, affiliated to the Parish Churches of Kingsnorth with Stubbs Cross and Shadoxhurst. We are a non-profit making community group run by a volunteer committee and adult leaders. Membership is open to youngsters, aged 7 to 21 (inclusive), from all religious denominations and abilities, in the Ashford area.
Our aims are to build the personal confidence of individuals by giving them the opportunity to perform either solely, or as part of a group, to an audience. Additionally we are able to provide an insight into the world of Theatre and to experience the back-stage activities which support productions (e.g. sound, lighting, prop and set construction).
The group was formed in 1999 as a millennium project but has continued since – providing a number of performances each year, to various audiences at differing locations.
