We are a large Scout Group with several sections covering all age groups (6 to 18) but we have no success at all in our efforts to recruit adult volunteers to maintain these sections. Late last year we had to close a Beaver Colony due to a lack of leaders and one of the remaining 2 Colonies is now also at risk. At least one of the Scout Troops is running right on the margin and this puts a tremendous strain on the leaders that are in the sections. In addition we really need to open a third Cub Pack to cater for the numbers of young people wanting places.
Despite repeated efforts to recruit more volunteers we get nowhere. I understand
not everyone wants to volunteer, and that many think they don't have the time to
do it, but there are no other options -
If you want your children to be able to join/continue we need your help to stay alive

Unfortunately, due to vandalism and criminal damage this is no longer available.
Face to face Scouting has been closed down since March, but we are now ready to begin opening up again. Initially with reduced sized groups meeting outdoors, but this will soon be expanded to include indoor meetings too. Obviously there will be extensive measures in place to mitigate the risks of transmission of the coronavirus; these are being worked on now. Once all of our arrangements (for each section) are in place and formally approved we will be in touch with the parents of our young people to let them know what the arrangements are for their section (not all sections will open at the same time and some arrangements may be different). We hope to see everyone back enjoying Scouting very soon.
Management of our waiting lists has obviously also been affected during this lockdown period, we will get back to normal operation as soon as possible. If you are waiting to hear from us please stay patient a little longer.
