Justin is beginning to get settled in as the new Beaver Scout Leader in the Aquila Colony and the handover from Jackie is going well. We've got 3 likely recruits to share the Assistant Beaver Leader roles on a part-time basis; fingers crossed that this works out OK, if it does our major issues in the Colony will be sorted (for now!). We could now do with someone to take over the admin/record keeping/finances for the Colony; it's not an onerous task have a chat with the GSL or with Justin if you want to know more.

We now need to find new adult volunteers for the Gemini Cub Pack and the Orion Scout Troop. The main Gemini leader is leaving at half-term; there are Assistant Leaders and Helpers and a parent rota, but we need someone to take charge; this need is urgent.

In the Orion Scout Troop due to leavers (and the section leader being on maternity leave) we will be down to one leader after Christmas - this is not viable and poses an immediate threat to the Troop, it may have to close.

Get in touch, have a chat, we'll not pressure you we'll just give you all the information you need to make a decision. Take a look at our new RECRUITMENT page. Don't be afraid that you can't do it, that you've no experience; that's how most people join us, they learn fast and enjoy it while they do. Please think about it: chat to someone: we need you!

We are still aiming to open a third Beaver Colony to cope with the large number of young people on the waiting list. Perhaps becoming a volunteer for this would suit you?

In August this year 11 Scouts and Explorers from the Group along with 2 Leaders joined a County trip to Estonia. One of the participants, Alexander Munn, has written an interesting account of the trip - read it here.
