Seeking a volunteer to…

be part of something amazing


Help keep us in line – join us as Group Secretary
Are you a natural organiser? Do you know what’s happening, not just next week, but next month and year too? Is your electronic diary always perfectly in synch? If this sounds like you, then we’d love you to consider supporting us as Group Secretary. A great communicator, team player and problem solver, you’ll be as good a listener as you are at taking accurate minutes and reminding us of our rules.
We’re only able to help young people step up, play their part and gain great skills when our groups are well managed and run. A Group Secretary is absolutely essential to this, which is why, as one of our trustees, you will be responsible, supportive and have our best interest at heart at all times. In return you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re helping us prepare so many more young people for the future.

Marquee putter uppers

Where you great with Meccano or Lego? Want to move that to a bigger scale?
Our marquee hire is a great money spinner. With four or eight bodies and some muscle we can erect and dismantle a marquee. Could you spare a couples of hours on an ad hoc basis, mainly during the summer?

Every Scout Group requires trustees.
This committee oversees the administration of the Group. As well as a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer, each Trustee Board welcomes people with specific skills, and representatives of Squirrel, Beaver, Cub and Scout parents. Our Board meets times a year, but effective members will volunteer for tasks in between the meetings, thus ensuring the smooth running of the Scout Group and maximising its potential for a hugely positive impact on its young members.

Could you help us for a short period to get rid of some white goods that we no longer need? They need putting on Facebook or similar and supporting the buyers to collect.

Could you be our Facilities Manager?

Keeping our HQ clean and safe is a bit like painting the forth bridge. One of the biggest issues is we don’t have anyone dedicated to keeping a list of jobs that need doing and poking people until those tasks get done.
Could you project manage our HQ?
It is not about doing everything. It is about managing the tasks and getting people to do them.
