4th Heswall (St. Peter's) Sea Scout Group RN44

4th Heswall was established in 1971 by members of the St. Peter’s Church parish in Lower Heswall, Wirral, UK. We are a member of the West Wirral District Scouts as part of Merseyside County Scouts, within the UK Scouting community.

4th Heswall Sea Scout Group RN44

We are a Royal Navy Recognised Sea Scout Group and have 5 sections in our group which structure programmes based around a Land Season and a Water Season.

This enables all young people the ability to earn the Chief Scout award badge and take part in a range of water activities (including sailing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and powerboating).

St. Peter’s Church continues to support and assist 4th Heswall as members of the St. Peter’s young persons uniformed group.

The land season takes place from October to April at St. Peter’s Centre on Village Road in Lower Heswall, Wirral.

The water season takes place from May to September twice weekly at our boathouse within the Sailing Centre complex at West Kirby Marine Lake, Wirral for the Sea Scouts, with regular trips and water sessions for the Squirrels, Beavers and Cub Scouts.

Wellbeing and Resilience at 4th Heswall

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
