Save our Scouts!

Much Wenlock’s Scouts are seeking a leader as a matter of urgency. After the retirement of the previous leader, a new facilitator is needed for Thursday night meetings from 7pm to 9pm. The Scout Group reports that if the role is not filled in short order, the sessions may no longer continue to run. Although many potential leaders may be put off by their lack of experience, Group Scout Leader Andy Barker reassures potential applicants that “you don’t need any experience as full and ongoing (award-winning!) training will be given. Many leaders are not from a teaching background, but this doesn’t matter as our team is strengthened by a diverse range of people and skills – we all bring our own unique talents to the party.”

The role is described as working with a friendly and experienced team, and being a leader involves organising fun activities for children aged 10 to 14 years of age. This might include anything from arts and crafts, outdoor pursuits such as hiking and camping, or supervising Scouts who are out and about helping in the community.
