1st Litherland Rowan Scout Group

For a good leg stretch why not take a stroll through our local countryside?

You can park at the Nags Head in Thornton and take the road to the left, this will lead you to Brooms cross crossing. 

Follow the paths through farmers fields, spotting old barns and commercial fishing lake.

This walk can be as long as you wish, you can walk through to Lunt or loop round and end up back at the pub. Terrain not suitable for wheelchairs and toilets are in the pub.

You may come across the odd dog walker but generally this is a very secluded walk.

A stroll through the countryside

This cultural walk between the two cathedrals is beautiful in any weather.

The walk is flat with cultural hotspots all around.

You can spot the Trunk sculpture, pass the Philharmonic pub, Everyman theatre and in non-COVID times spot a famous footballer staying at the Carriage Works.

There, you will see plenty of places to drink and eat along the way, mostly external seating with internal disability access bathrooms.

While we are still taking things easy why not try a new local walk? Lunt reserve is well worth a visit.

Follow the river Alt around the reserve and see how many birds you can see.


Path not suitable all the way round for wheelchair access but you can get through a good part of the walk. 

Parking at Ergo (the Old Punchbowl pub).

No toilets unless you book in to the restaurant. 

Get out there!

Once prayer's were finished we then marched again down to Bootle Town Hall for saluting the Mayor.

We finished our march at Trinity Road Bootle for step down, where Scouts could then either go home of go to the Town Hall for refreshments.

We have recently held our first Moon Light Walk and this was well attended - thank you.

Scouts took part as part of their work to earn their Space Badge so well done to everyone braving the cold to walk the RAP!  


Saturday saw us hold our first Big Tent event in the school.

Children had the opportunity to explore the tents and outside space with their parent's. We also had a sensory entertainer come along ' Wacky Jacky' to show us some sensory experiments and that went down really well with children and parent's.

We were shown how to make gloop, smoke hoops, massive bubbles and lots of different noises and smells!


Below are some of the pictures of the children enjoying the event:

A short video of the great things we can ALL achieve in Scouting..........................

Welcome to 1st Litherland Rowan Scout Group.


We began our group back in April 2015 and have been growing since.

The section is run by a Group Scout Leader – Cathie McDonald – who has been in scouting for many years and has trained with the Altside District to set up Rowan Park Schools Scouting Group.


We work with children from 5 ½ to 14.

Beavers – 5 ½ - 8 years old

Cubs – 8 – 10 years old

Scouts – 10-14 years old. 


The Scouting association has granted us permission to adapt their badge and awards schemes to suit our children’s need so that every child has the chance to achieve awards.  The badge planning is done for a school year period and we aim for the children to earn three badges a year.

This year we are working on the following:



Disability Awareness, Cook Badge and Garden Badge


Disability Awareness, Chef Badge and Naturalist badge


Community Impact stage 1, Chef Badge and Forester Badge.


Children receive support for achieving their badge work to ensure all participants succeed.

Forest School Adventure

During the Spring and Summer term we will be working in the Forest School making weekly visits to learn about nature, what we can do to help nature and hopefully planting a couple of fruit trees to watch them grow and hopefully taste their produce - if/when we get any!!


Scouts will also be making crafts of a nature base and will be taking them home.


Through regular attendance to Scouting sessions all sections will be working towards their Nature Badges which will be awarded at the end of the academic year. 

Scout Night Out:


1st Litherland Scouts are off to the Cinema on 5 December 2016 for their Christmas Treat. Children will be leaving school at 2.45pm and returning for collection by parent’s/carers at 5.30pm.


A big THANK YOU to Helvellyn class in the 16+ Department for helping raise money for this trip by running a Raffle for us!

Scout's will be finishing for Christmas on Monday 12th December, we will be having a little Christmas Party in School. We will be returning to Scout's on Monday 16th January 2017 - so we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
