Parental Support

This Scout Group depends on Parental support to continue to provide quality Scouting to the 85 young people in the Group. All the adults involved are volunteers and give their time freely. Although there are around 15 Leaders, Assistant Leaders and regular Helpers, new parents to volunteer and help with the Group.

Anyone interested in becoming a leader or a helper on a regular or occasional basis, please contact Dudley Barrow. No previous experience is necessary, as training will be provided. There is no payment for being a leader, but you can expect lots of fun and adventure and to make many friends.

Join the 100,000 volunteers that give time to The Scout Association throughout the UK.
