We are always in the lookout for more helpers.
This can be anything from helping out for an hour or two on our burger stall at the village fete, helping to organise the group, assisting at weekly meetings, or all the way through to becoming a warranted section leader – it’s up to you! If you’re interested, contact one of the section leaders, or the Group Scout Leader, and we’ll talk through how you can help.
What does the scout executive committee do?
The scout executive committee is made up of a mixture of leaders and parents who meet once every two months to plan activities for the children and organise group events. They oversee the allocation of group funds, maintain all group equipment and organise fundraising events. An AGM is held every year to which all parents are invited to attend during which the officers are elected and the financial audit presented. The exec would welcome any parent wishing to join at any time.
How can I become a leader?
To become a qualified leader you will need to regularly help out with one of the scout groups (beaver/cub/scouts) and undertake a series of training courses throughout this time. You would normally start by helping out on a regular basis and build up experience and responsibility over time. If you are seriously considering volunteering as a leader, or have been a leader with another group, then please contact us.
