Like any Scout Group we are always looking for adult volunteers to help run the various sections (and to assist in other ways). Every section would benefit from more help and we do need to open more sections just to cater for the numbers of young people who want to join. Our needs change from time to time as people come and go and we try to keep these pages up to date to reflect this, but if you have any interest please get in touch, we are unlikely to turn you away!


Ideally we look for uniformed leaders who are prepared to undertake Scout Association training, but there are plenty of other leadership and helper roles that may suit other people.  Also, as well as these leadership roles some of the sections could do with help with administration (looking after records, finance etc) or occasional help with particular programme sessions.


As well as these roles working directly with the young people on a weekly basis we need additional members on the Group Executive Committee. The administration of the whole Group is run by the Executive Committee made up of the Group Chairman, The Group Treasurer, The Group Secretary, parent representatives, other elected members and the Group Scout Leader and the Leaders of each section. We don’t have, but would like, a Fund Raising Committee (acting as a sub-committee if the Group Executive Committee). Adult volunteers in any capacity are not restricted to being parents/carers of young people in the Group.  We have many who are, and many more who are not - what you do need to be is keen to help!


More information about the various roles, about training and about other aspects of volunteering is available on the Scout Association website.


If you’d like to volunteer or to talk to someone please contact the Group Scout Leader, John Green, 01949 875057, gsl@1stbinghamscouts.org.uk

At the moment we have waiting lists for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.


As we have opened a third Beaver Colony the situation with the Beaver waiting list will improve; but there are lots of young people out there wanting to join. Although we expect the waiting period to drop from about 2 years to a few months it is very likely that it will soon increase again as extra names are added to the list. We would still recommend that you get your child’s name down as soon as possible.


The Beaver waiting list is maintained by John Green:

In the Cub section we have very limited scope to take in additional members; we may need to start looking to open a third Cub Pack, but as always the problem is finding adult leaders. We do have some space for new members in the Scout section at the moment. We are happy to take names on the waiting list for Cub and Scout places.


We will, of course, observe the Scout Association requirement that any existing member of a Group outside our District who moves into Bingham will be found a place.


Anyone wishing to enquire about the possibility of joining should contact: join@1stbinghamscouts.org.uk.
