You Can Help

As everything is run by volunteers, we need all families to contribute as best as they can to the running of our Scout Group. There are countless ways in which people can help.

Some ideas:
  • Offer to act as a leader of any of the Sections – leaders have fun too!
  • Assist as Adult Support in a Section
  • Participate on the Group Committee
  • Offer to take on an office-bearer position
  • Provide expertise or skills that can be utilised by the Group
  • Lend equipment (such as a yacht) or facilities (such as a farm for camping) that can be utilised by the Group
  • Organise publicity for Group events
  • Help produce the Group newsletter – contribute photos, chase up stories, donate printing or paper
  • Come down and talk to a Section about your profession or hobby
  • Provide an excursion to your place of employment, eg, factory or laboratory
  • Provide a home for an international exchange Scout
  • Help with hall maintenance – especially if you have a trade skill
  • Offer to look after hall hire bookings
  • Look after the waiting list
  • Run the uniform swap shop
  • Act as quartermaster and look after the Group’s equipment
  • Offer to tow a trailer or, if you have the appropriate licence, to drive a bus to camps and other activities
  • Donate prizes for or offer to organise fundraising events
  • Help on the hall cleaning or lawn mowing rosters
  • Create and maintain a Group website

Please contact the Group Leader or the Chairman of the Group Committee if you can help out with any of these items.
