Skills for Life

Axe District includes Weston-super-Mare, Wick St Lawrence, Congresbury, Wrington, Blagdon, Churchill, Sandford, Winscombe, Banwell, Locking, Uphill and everything in between.

Welcome to Axe District

Each week over 1400 young people aged 4–25 enjoy an active programme in one of our 18 groups, our Explorer Scout Units or with our Scout Network.

As well as the weekly meetings groups take part in a number of fun and exciting events. Recent events have included archery, climbing, hill walking, canoeing, camping, paintballing, zip wires, go karting – in fact you name it and we’ve probably done it.
