Our Scout Group is growing! We need adults who are keen to try new things and to have fun to join our team of Leaders, to help us provide fantastic opportunities to local young people. Our Leaders are people just like you, but working together they make extraordinary things happen by providing a wide range of activities on a weekly basis. We are open to boys and girls from all faiths, backgrounds and abilities, and welcome everyone.

What do you have to do?

We meet weekly & are looking for someone to join our team of Leaders. If you can't be there every week that's OK, we understand and welcome you when you can come. Whatever time you have to give, we can find a role for you that you will find rewarding.

Contact us for more information or a non committal chat about how you could help. Alternatively, you could visit www.scouts.org.uk for more information about Scouting generally.
