Knots and lashings were on the agenda last night as our Unit Forum chose to work on some Scouting Skills. The winning team’s tripod held the weight of 27 tent pegs, 6 mobile phones and a bottle of water!


We were proud to be part of the service in Sandbach this morning. We presented our special paracord wreath there.

We were also proud to be part of the parade in Crewe. One of our Explorers, Carys, delivered a reading as part of the act of Remembrance #RemembranceSunday

Who we are

We are Shipton ESU, the Explorer Scout Unit serving Sandbach and surrounding areas.

We are a part of the South West Cheshire District.

Relaunched in 2018, we provide 14 to 18-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and skills for life.

Scouting helps young adults reach their full potential. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

We meet every Thursday during school term time, usually at the Sandbach Scout Centre from 7:30pm to 9:00pm.

Where we meet

Members of the Explorer Unit can log in to this website to see the full programme, and all our forthcoming events and activities.

To sign up for an event, Explorers or parents can log in via My.Scout
