Bear Grylls says:
“We have crazy waiting lists, there are 35,000 kids wanting to join the Scouts. Our challenge is always to get enough adult volunteers to keep up with that growth, so my message is always that busy people can do a little bit.”

Our Supporters and Volunteers

The success of our group is only possible with the amazing efforts of our supporters and volunteers. They help us run Jumble Sales, the Christmas Market and the other fundraising activities we need to run the Scout Group each year – as we’re a self funding charitable organisation.So whatever spare time you’ve got, everything from one day a year to something more regular, why not get in touch and see how you can be a part of our Scout Group?
