HELP WANTED

1st Ramsbury are always on the lookout for additional helpers to assists in the running of the Group.

You may feel that you would like to be part of the Scout Group and offer some of your free time to become part of a very friendly, active and successful Scout Group.

 

We welcome any help offered and this may vary from being a member of the Committee, through offering ad-hoc help (on camp and trips away) to becoming a full uniformed Leader in one of the 3 sections of your choice.

Within the sections, we plan the program two terms in advance so we all know what we are to do and have plenty of time to organise. The Committee meets every couple of months and discusses the 3 programs and how they can assist in the running of the 3 sections, and where they can assist the Leaders (as well as other matters).

We hold an annual BBQ once a year where we all get together (with the youngsters and parents) and we use this opportunity to show case what we have achieved and to complete the annual registration for all young people.

If you have any spare time, or anything else to offer the Group, we would love to hear from. Please use the 'CONTACT US' tab above (under 'About Us').
