We are fortunate to be supported by a fantastic group of adult volunteers who each bring a unique set of skills to the Scout Group.

The group is led by the group Scout leader who manages the operations and direction of the Scout Group. Each section has a Section Leader responsible for the planning and delivery of the adventurous programme. The Section Leaders are supported by our Executive Committee in carrying out their role.

We are always on the look out for adults to get involved and help deliver Scouting to our young people. There is a role to suit everyone and all are welcome. If you are interested please get in touch.
