Where are we?

We run our section nights from our own hall in Bute Street, Whifflet. Please note our hall is not available for hire by external parties.

History of 2nd Coatbridge

2nd Coatbridge Scout group was founded over 110 years ago, in 1907. We are located in the Whifflet area of Coatbridge and our scout group meet in our own hall.

In the past the Group has been located on Gartsherrie Road and then we were in Burnbank Street (now a dance studio). In the early 2000’s we took up home in our current hall that previously belonged to 1st Coatbridge Scout Group.

Our group includes all four sections, beaver, cubs, scouts and explorers. We currently have a team of voluntary adult leaders and an executive committee ensuring that 100 girls and boys get the opportunity to learn practical skills for life and help them be responsible citizens as members of their local, national and international communities.
