Our biggest issue is not enough Cub places. Both of the Packs are now full and with
fewer Cubs moving out to Scouts than there are Beavers wanting to move in at the
bottom end we have a serious problem. The short-
Obviously the only sustainable solution is to open a 3rd Cub Pack. The only way we can do this is with more volunteers; we don't have a ready supply waiting in the wings! Nor do have a magic Leader tree! This issue is important and urgent; it affects those already in the Group as well as those who want to join. Without a 3rd Pack the problem will get worse, in time we may have Beavers waiting for Cub places for so long that by the time one come available they are too old to join.

Other, less pressing, but no less important issues exist in the Lynx Beaver Colony and the Orion Scout Troop; we need to recruit more adults, preferrably as uniformed Leaders, but we can be flexible if you fancy doing something but are reluctant to commit to being a Leader. Most of the other sections could do with some help, sometimes ocassional or temporary assistance can make a tremendous difference; have a word with someone who is already involved they will tell you how important and rewarding it can be, and how much fun you can have.
We also need more volunteers on the Group Executive committee and ocassional help with fundraising. Please get in touch and have a chat.

If you don't fancy helping us maybe you know someone else who might? Volunteers don't have to be parents, just 18 or more. More detailed information on the Recruitment Page.
