We are always on the look out for willing volunteers! There are plenty of different tasks, from helping in the background with Scout Group administration to becoming a warranted leader with our Beavers, Cub, Scout or Explorer sections. There is support available every step of the way.
The time commitment can vary from an hour or so a month to a few hours a week, depending on what you want to do. Why not get in contact with the Group Scout Leader for an informal chat about what it involves.
You can also see more information about Adults in Scouting on the Scout Association’s Website.
Due to the continued expansion of the group we have a number of Adult places available at the moment.
