Aquila Beaver Colony

Following our search for help in the Aquila Beaver Colony we have had a volunteer come forward to be a regular helper. This is great and thank you very much Michelle. But it still leaves us with a major problem. With only one full Leader in the section we are in danger of not meeting minimum requirements. If for example the Leader is unable to attend the Beaver meeting it will not be able to take place. It is therefore vitally important that we find at least one volunteer who is prepared to become a full Leader - the viability of the Colony is at stake.

Omega Explorer Scout Unit

Ian, a long standing Leader in the Group who presently runs the Unit, is having to step down due to changing work commitments. Due to their own work issues neither of the Assistant Leaders in the Unit are able to take over the Leader role - we therefore need to find someone else to do this.

Running an Explorer Unit is a very different proposition to running the youner sections as the young people (14-18 yr olds) are able to do a lot more for themselves. In many cases the Leader is there mostly to help and guide and keep them safe!

Ian would be happy to chat about the role with anyone who may feel inclined to think about it - no pressure, honestly! Just get in touch via omega@1stbinghamscouts.org.uk.

These recruitment needs are urgent; we must do something about them quickly to keep the sections running. But we also have to regularly recruit new help, especially to replace those that leave, without new Leaders the various sections cannot survive. Please help us either by volunteering yourself or by help us to find other people to volunteer.

As an incentive anyone who commits to a formal Leadership role and who has a child on the waiting list will have their child advanced up the list.
