Volunteers Needed

1st Marwood Scouts is growing fast, new young people are joining every term and Beaver, Cub and Scout sections need adult support to allow them to continue to operate and grow.


We need your help even if it's just an hour a month there's a place waiting for you.


Currently we are looking for a Activities Team Member to work with the Scout section, full training will be provided, you will need a Scout DBS check done and go through a selection/appointment process, if you're 18 or over please drop me an an email or give me a call, we can discuss how you can help to encourage, foster, develop and build strong, independent confident young people.

I learnt a lot and I don’t think I could have done without it.” Sir Chris Bonnington says “Scouting does an absolutely terrific job. It’s all about getting young people outdoors and encouraging them to be independent.” Bear Grylls sums it up “As Chief Scout, I’ve met some of the most inspiring young people ever. I’m proud to be part of the largest youth movement in the world.”
