What people say about us


Being part of 7th has created many unforgettable memories and has really helped me to become who I am today. I have experienced things, like the joy of sailing, that I would otherwise never have had the opportunity to do and I have met some amazing, keen and enthusiastic Scouts and leaders who have even inspired me to become a young leader myself.

Dear Parents/Guardians

As you may be aware, 7th Edinburgh North East (Leith Sea Scouts) Group is a registered charity. One of the benefits of being a charity is that we can claim back the tax you have paid on your subs. In order to do that, please fill out the simple form available from any of the leaders. There is no extra cost to you but the group is entitled to, approximately, an extra £90 over the course of your child’s time in the group.

Rest assured that all of your details are kept safe and secure by us in line with the Data Protection Act.

If you have any questions, please speak to either myself or one of the other leaders.
