Volunteer with Us

Our Scout Group is run entirely by unpaid volunteers – the Leaders, Group Executive, and our friends. They plan & run activities for our young people, our group events, and maintain & manage our hall & grounds – which is used most days by community groups.

Helping out doesn’t have to be regular commitment – it can be the odd event, joining a “call sheet” of people we ask for help, signing up to a rota, or working through odd jobs when you like.

There are lots of different ways you can help – you could be cutting the grass, checking-in hall hire bookings, in the kitchen at a fundraiser, be an extra pair of hands when the Cubs do woodwork, or become a Beaver Leader or Group Secretary!

Getting involved isn’t complicated or time-consuming, and we’ll help you right from the start. If you’re going to be helping out regularly, we’ll ask you to complete a free PVG (Disclosure) check, and if you’re going to become a Leader or Group Executive member, there’s a few basic online training modules like GDPR, Safety, and Safeguarding to complete in your first few months.

There’ll be support all around you, and you’ll learn as you go – our group is full of friendly people with lots of experience and skills. Most of what we know we’ve learnt by doing and working with others, and most of us started off from scratch. For roles that need training, there’s also loads of useful resources available online and local free training courses that fit around your diary.


Cut the grass in our hall grounds

Lend a Hand at Events

Be an extra pair of hands at our Fundraising Events – in the kitchen, setting up, selling food/drink… We’ve a lot of experience in running events, so there’ll be plenty of guidance on hand!

Occasional Helper

Be an extra pair of hands during Beavers, Cubs or Scouts. You could be helping Cubs with woodwork, marshalling Beavers wash their hands, or supervising Scouts doing firelighting. Don’t be daunted – our Leaders will still organise everything, take charge and give instructions!

Group Secretary

Join our Group Executive, take minutes of meetings and work with the Chair and Treasurer especially – to help with admin like insurance renewals and meeting agendas.

Assistant Beaver Leader

Can you herd a horde of excitable 6-year-olds? Do you thrive on fun & nonsense? Are you interested in teaching & learning new craft, outdoor and life skills?

If that sounds like you – we need you to help our Beaver Leader plan and run activities for our Beavers!

Assistant Cub Leader

Do you enjoy exploring, getting out & about, and learning new craft, outdoor and life skills? Great – would you like to help our 8-10 year-old Cubs do that too? No two weeks are the same – you’ll play “Yoga Death-Ball” and learn about Climate Change one week, make spaghetti-marshmallow towers the next, and then visit a Fire Station!
