Following the recent appointment of Emma Dowson as our Duke of Edinburgh Award Group Leader, Paisley & District Scouts is pleased to announce an open evening for young people and parents to sign up to the award.


Young People (aged 13years and above) along with their parents are invited to attend our open evening on 7th December at District HQ, Oldhall Road, Paisley starting at 8pm, We don’t envisage it lasting more than an hour or so.

This meeting will be an opportunity for young people across Paisley, Barrhead & Neilston to come along with their parent/guardian to gather information on the Districts plan for Duke of Edinburgh Award and to register their interest in joining our new adventure.

We will outline the different levels and the way in which we plan to run the training etc. over the coming year.

District Duke of Edinburgh Group Leader, Emma Dowson Said:
“The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a great opportunity for young people to further their skills and boost their opportunities to get a job, into college or university.

“We are offering young people across Paisley, Barrhead & Neilston the opportunity to experience the fun and adventure of Scouting whilst completing the award.”
