1st Wisborough Green Scout Group needs your Help!

A casualty of the Covid pandemic, 1st Wisborough Green Scout Group became dormant. It has taken a lot of effort and commitment from volunteers to get back up and running to where they are today. Re launching in Autumn 2022 the Group is celebrating its return 1 year anniversary and now has a full and thriving Beaver Colony (ages 6-8) lead by Hannah Miller, and Cub Pack (ages 8-10.5 years) lead by Donna Fordham. There are plans to launch a Scout Troop in 2024.

The group has also been active in the community raising over £700 at the August Bank Holiday summer fete on The Green selling teas, coffees and cakes. Thank you to all of those who came along in support!

To continue to grow and support more young people, more volunteers are needed.  Would you like to make new friends, try new things or challenge yourself? Do you like to get outdoors and stuck in? Do you want to positively impact your local community and create vital opportunities for young people on your doorstep? Do you want to make memories of a lifetime?

Hannah Miller said “We are inviting those interested in volunteering with 1st Wisborough Green Scout Group to get in touch. It is great fun and it’s amazing what our young people are achieving through the opportunities we are creating in scouting. We have long waiting lists with lots more young people keen to get involved. You could come and see what we get up to, help out, find out more about the roles and then decide if volunteering with the group is something you would like to pursue.

We are recruiting volunteers for support roles like committee members, assistant leaders in uniform and occasional helpers not in uniform. From helping us look after The Hut, to helping look after the finances or directly with our young people there are loads of ways you can help. Email me at wisgreenbeavers@gmail.com to register your interest and to find out more.”
