How can I help?

There are lots of ways in which you can help, for example:

  • Offering a skill or hobby to train or test the Beaver and  Cub Scouts for Activity badges.
  • Be a cook at camp, Colony or Pack residential or help to prepare refreshments for a Group, Colony or Pack event.
  • Drive a minibus to events and outing.
  • Support the Scout Group’s fund raising events, social events, Annual General Meeting and Open evenings.
  • Join the Scout Group Executive Committee to help them plan fund raising, buy equipment and manage the Scout Group.
  • Become an Assistant Leader or Section Assistant.
  • Become an office bearer or member of the Group Executive Committee.

In all of these roles, training and support will be provided.

The Group Council

Once your youngster is invested into the Scout Group, you automatically become a member of the Group Council.  All parents, Leaders and Patrol Leaders in the Group are Members of this Council.  It meets once a year at its Annual General Meeting.

To read the Annual Report of the Group Council, click here.

The Group Executive Committee

Each year, the Group Council elects an Executive Committee consisting of a number of parents and various Leaders in the Group to carry out the day-to-day tasks of running the Scout Group.  They are responsible for purchasing of equipment and maintaining group property.  The function of the Group Executive Committee is also to support and help the Group Scout Leader carry out their role in maintaining an effective and successful Scout Group.

What do I get from helping?

You will have the opportunity to meet a variety of new people and make a real contribution to help your local community.  Please do not be too shy to offer your help and if you feel you have any skills to offer to the Cub Scout Pack, please contact the Cub Scout Leader.

By playing your part and supporting your child you will share the enjoyment, friendship and fun of the family of Scouting.

OK, Sounds good.  How do I get involved?

Contact the Group using our Contact Link or speak to an adult member of the Group on your next visit.
