Leaders are urgently needed for the Brede Beaver Scout and Scout Troops. It requires two hours per week plus a couple of hours per month for planning and some training. Any CRB checks necessary will be paid for. There are Leaders available to help you get started, but the Troops have had to close for the time being due to there not being enough adults to run them. If you can help in any way please contact Colin on 07980-171877 or Rhiannon Oliver on 01424-882037 or visit facebook page: 1st Brede Scout Troop.
