Liverpool North District Scouts

Supporting Scouting in Merseyside

Explorers are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Structure and meetings

Liverpool North Explorers, or LiverBears, are one single unit within Liverpool North with the flexibility to meet on two nights. This gives the flexibility to you as an Explorer to choose when you attend and what activities you do.

Both nights, Mondays and Tuesdays, work together with the common aim to deliver a full programme of interests to you as Explorers while working together to provide joint activities for all to enjoy. All activities and meeting nights are planned with your involvement to ensure we deliver the fun and pack programme you want to complete.

Both nights differ slightly to ensure that whichwever night you attend, there should be something which interests you.

Mondays Tuesdays
17th Fairfield HQ
Meadow Lane
West Derby
L12 5EA
St Luke’s Church
Goodison Road
L4 4EH


Weekly subs are £3.00 which includes for hall hire and annual capitation payments. This one weekly charge enables you to attend one or both nights each week.


Explorers get the chance to work with other Explorers in their District, not just their own Unit, so can take part in an even wider spectrum of activities. All our activities and meetings are based on what you as an Explorer want to do from looking at environmental issues, to local projects, or working towards hobbies and interests.

Various camps and activities are all offered on the basis of what you want to do. We are a truly Youth Shaped section.

We offer the full range of Duke of Edinburgh Award utilising County resources to ensure the expedition elements can be met. This ties into the Scouts Top Awards of Chief Scout's Platinum, Diamond and Queen's Scout Awards.

We have also supported and continue to support our Explorers attendance at the World Scout Jamboree, EuroJam and Explorer Belt Expeditions as well as annual attendance at the Merseymoot and annual trips to the Pantomime.

The video below shows what we do as a whole within Liverpool North District, being filmed and presented by a number of our Explorers for our 2019 District AGM.

Blog | Eco Bricks

We are joining Merseyside Scouts in there mission to reduce plastic waste and produce Ecobricks for use at Tawd Vale Adventure Centre.

Ecobricks are plastic bottles full of tiny pieces of plastic. When full and of a certain weight, they become bricks/blocks for building!


We are encouraging Beaver Scout Colonies (and other Sections) to fill 2-litre bottles with plastic and to aim for a 660g weight. It is hoped that we can build things such as park benches for the community and a bothy at Tawd Vale Adventure Centre.  There are some great ideas on the Ecobricks website.

Badge work could include: Creative Activity Badge; Community Impact Activity Badge and Global Issues Activity Badge.

The Ecobrick experience can change family lifestyles and if we adopt plastic free homes then less and less ecobricks will need to be created.

Interesting fact: in thirty year's time there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish!


More information and a sign up page is available on the County Website


Useful infromation can be found in the documents and some helpful videos can also be found below.

We are supporting Merseyside Scouts and their 8week CRE8 Challenge. This week, week 2, is all about Community and how we can support those around us.

We thought about this in Liverpool North and thought what better way to do this than show your appreciation to all those working on the front line everyday to help others through this time of crisis.

We want to show our support by creating a video of as many of our members saying a great big THANK YOU to all our key works, medics, shop assistants, lorry and delivery drivers, teachers, carers and parents and everyone else.


We want you to follow these steps to get involved:

Step1: Download the PDF file here either to your tablet to display on screen or computer so you can print it out.

Step 2: Get a family member to help you create a video in your garden, lounge, kitchen or anywhere safe.

Step 3: Hold up and display the banner facing towards the camera and record a short video, no longer than 10 seconds, saying Thank You to an individual or group of people who you think deserves it at this time. This can be anyone from your parents, to the delivery men and women, nurses and doctors or the shop assistants keeping the country going.

Step 4: Email your videos to our District Youth Commissioner, Rainbow, at rainbow.mcgowan@liverpoolnorthdistrict.org.uk. Rainbow will then pull all these videos together and produce a video which we can share with the wider community to show our thanks.


And that's it! If you want you can share your video's to social media but don't forget share on our Facebook page!
