If they are older than 6 then we will review the situation towards the end of each term and see whether there is space in the relevant cub and scout sections.

Joining as an Adult

Without adults we are unable to create and run our exciting programme of activities and events for the young people.

Being an adult in scouting is a fun and rewarding contribution to the local community.

Adults can help in a number of ways:

  • As a section leader or assistant section leader to work as a team to plan and deliver a programme of activities for the young people in your section. The section leader is responsible for recording progress towards badges and to award them when they have been achieved.
  • As a section assistant who helps the section leaders to deliver the programme. Section assistants are an extra pair of hands during meetings or may have a specific skill or qualification e.g. archery instructor.
  • As a group executive member to help manage the scout group and building, ensure we are properly funded and to help develop the group.
  • As a group supporter to help out at events, to run fundraising events including jumble sales, bingo evenings, camps, walks and many more!
  • As an occasional helper who may be part of the parent rota for their young person’s section, stay overnight at camp or help out generally less than twice a month.

All the roles guarantee a fun and rewarding experience. Appropriate training is provided and we are fortunate to be able to offer individual mentoring from experienced scouters and supporters.

If you are interested in any of the above roles please contact the Group Scout Leader (Gareth Cox), your section leader or complete and submit the form below.
