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. Just finished college and or Uni and want to get back into Scouting - you never really left, welcome.


Currently we are looking for a Chairman to lead and a Secretary to help run our small Executive Committee plus an Activities Team Member to work with the Beavers, Cubs & Scout sections, 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.

Thank you,

Bugsy, Scout Leader
