Be Prepared – For Adventure!

We’re keen to expand the Group to provide more exciting adventures to young people in and around Heath and Reach. But we need more adults to do this. Could you help?

I’ve loved getting involved in the Group. It’s helped me meet new people in the town, is a great way of supporting the community, and everyone is keen to help.

If you’re interested in any of the roles below, or could help in other ways, please get in touch.

Beaver Helper

Beaver Helper

Working with 6-8 year olds
Due to retirement we need to find a new adult to join our Beaver team.

Our Beaver programme is fun, messy, loud and packed with adventure – you’ll need to be be able to enjoy working with the team of Adults to deliver an exciting programmes, and making sure that the Young People are happy and enjoying themselves.

This role could be regular or just a couple of times a month. And it could involve just the weekly meetings, or getting inolved in weekend events. Make it whatever is convenient for you!

Scout Helper

Scout Helper

Working with 11-14 year olds

Due to growth we need a new adult on our Scout team. You’ll need energy and creativity to be able to help our Scouts have fun, develop their potential and earn a wide range of awards, including the prestigious Chief Scout Award.

This will involve working with our existing adults to deliver weekly programmes, but also occasional night-time and weekend activities.

Parent representatives

Parent representatives

Help everyone keep talking

Parent representatives provide an important link between the three Sections (Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts) and the management team.

They attend meetings, typically quarterly, and provide opinions on behalf of other parents (and the young people) about where we are going and what the needs are. For example is something too expensive, are we providing the right level of information, do our targets sound sensible, are we clashing with any other events in the community.

They might also help out with some of the Group’s projects, e.g. looking after a fund-raising project, helping us to manage equipment, or helping us to find a contractor.

Building manager

Building manager

Help look after our home!

We’re very lucky having our own building. However, it does occasionally need some maintenance to keep it going – an occasional splash of paint or fixing a leaky gutter will help it to keep going for another 100 years!

  • We’d welcome a member of the team to help keep on top of building management – identifying problems, ensuring everything is above board, and that we meet any regulations.
  • You don’t need to have any qualifications – we can help guide you through the basics, and can provide training on things like fire safety.

Group Scout Leader (Manager)

Group Scout Leader (Manager)

Helping to lead us forward

We need to find a manager who can help us keep everything running effectively.

This will involve working with the adults to make sure rules are followed, helping ensure we have goals (and are meeting them), and making sure that the Young People are happy and enjoying the programme.

Cub Helper

Cub Helper

Working with 8-10 year olds

Due to retirement we need to find someone to join our team to help run interesting and active meetings for the Cubs.

You’ll be encouraging the Young People to try out new challenges, learn skills that will help them for the rest of their lives, and just have fun!

You don’t need to be Bear Grylls – whether you can cook, sew, paint, kayak or garden, you’ll have skills that you can share and help us to run a varied programme.
