4th Denton (St Anne’s) Scout Group

4th Denton Scout Group came into existence in 1935 and has run continuously for nearly 80 years. The Group has always met in the crypt under the church which is accessed by the St Anne' Drive entrance.

Situated just to the south of the city of Manchester the group enjoys easy access to the Tame valley and the Peak District as well as the city centre of Manchester. It is part of Tameside South District which encompasses the areas of Denton, Hyde, Audenshaw, Newton & Gee Cross in the Metropolitan Borough of Tameside.

Although meeting in the church; boys and girls do not have to attend the church to join the Scout Group; any young person between the ages of 6 years and 13 years can come along and Join The Adventure. Check the section pages or get in touch via the Contact Us page.
