Events and News


At our next AGM we will need to elect a new Chairperson and Secretary. Unfortunately we have not filled these positions over the year so are in grave danger of being forced to shut the group (under charities commission rules)

Our group's executive committee helps run the group along with the Group Scout and section leaders. The committee is made up of a Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary. If interested in either role all we ask is that you chair and take notes (secretary!) at our AGM and any exec meetings (we supply the tea and biscuits!) we try to hold these meetings once a term. No experience of scouting is required but all committee members will need to have a full CRB check (funded by the group)
