Adult Roles in our Scout Group

Ever wondered about the Set up in Scouting ?, This is detailed information on role descriptions for the adults within our Scout Group that can be found via this Link

Please note we don’t have a Squirrel Section in our Scout Group, We would basically need to have at least 3 new Adults each week for running this Section with a maximum of 12 Squirrels.

Our Priority and focus is to currently ensure that the 3 Sections in our Scout Group have enough adults to provide Scouting Activities  

Safeguarding, Safety + Safe Scouting

Young people thrive in safe surroundings. We’re committed to ensuring that Scouting is both enjoyable and safe for everyone who takes part, along with providing parents with peace of mind. Please read the Scout Association’s Safeguarding + Safety Policies on how we safeguard the welfare of all members. All volunteers who help to run our activities give their time freely to help young people enjoy Scouting.

We also have Safe Scouting Cards for all Adults Volunteers to follow

Running Costs

Our Scout Group is a Registered Charity which needs income to support the running costs of the Scout Group. Below briefly outlines what these are. Scouting itself is very good value for money.

Income: The main Sources of Income within our Scout Group come for Term Fees, Gift Aid and the Scout Christmas Post Fundraiser.

How much do Term Fee’s cost - We collect Term Fees which can be £10 Monthly Instalments, x2 £20 Half Termly or one £40 Full Payment to whichever suits yourself.

Outgoings: The big cost is the Yearly National, Regional, County, District Membership Fee per Child.. Our other main cost is the weekly hire of our meeting place, plus other costs that include general running of our Scout Group and to support the effective running of our three Sections.

If you are interested in finding out more how our Scout Group runs we are alway open to new parents joining our Scout Group Trustee Board  that meet 3 times a year and the yearly Group AGM.
