Skills for Life

We’re based in Newbold on Avon about 5 minutes from Rugby town centre. We have Scouts traveling from all over the district because we have the river Avon, the Oxford canal, woodland, space & fields within one minutes walk of our HQ.

Welcome to 5th Rugby (Newbold) Scouts

Given new guidance from the Prime Minister, we have suspended all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events for the time being.

You will no doubt be aware that the Coronavirus situation continues to develop around the world.
The Prime Minister has announced that everyone in the UK should now avoid non-essential travel and contact with others. The safety of everyone involved in Scouts, both young people and adults, is our number one priority. That is always at the heart of our decision making. Given this new guidance, we have suspended all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events for the time being.
We have set up a dedicated web page at to keep you up to date on the latest developments.
It’s in challenging times like these that our Scout values matter most. We are talking to the Government and other community organisations to see how Scouts can support our country during this crisis.
We are also developing some fun activities for young people to do at home with their parents if families are faced with self-isolation. We will be communicating more about this soon.
We want to say thank you to all our amazing Scout volunteers. They have taken a calm and measured approach to this situation. They are continuing to ensure that young people and adults stay safe.

Welcome to the website for 5th Newbold Scout Group

We have a history that can be traced back to 1910 just three years after Baden Powell started Scouting.

We have been based in Lea Crescent since 1987 and have had many hundreds of young people pass through the group over the years.

We are a very active group and do lots of activities,

We have a few places available for boys & girls to join so please contact one of our leadership team to come along and see if it is your thing.

Adult volunteers

The Scouts award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people.
