We are Recruiting!

We are actively recruiting volunteers to become Leaders, Assistants and backroom helpers. Volunteering for Scouting is easier than you think. Do you have an hour here or there to help with admin or the enthusiasm to become a Leader. Do you just want to see what goes on and make your mind up?  Get in touch. With award winning training and full support you can experience the fun, friendship and adventure of Scouting for yourself on a flexible basis.

Do you have management experience. Could you be our next Chair? The Chair works with the Group Scout Leader and together they run the Scout Group. If you have a few hours a week to do this then get in touch.

Call or email me, Steve, I’m the Group Scout Leader, on 07802 208632 or email: gsl.1stwoosehill@gmail.com
