Help is urgently needed to keep scouting alive in Northiam.

Popular Cub Scout leader Malcolm Green is having to step down this month due to family commitments.

Northiam Scouts is a strong group and one of the first in the country to be formed, but it has struggled to find leaders in the past.

Jacky Broad said: “Cub Scouts will continue to meet from September 15 where there will be provision to continue with the scouting activities. We are hoping more people will come forward to help.”

The Scouts are currently working hard to organise their annual Pink Piglet Day fund raiser which takes place at their Goddens Gill headquarters on Saturday August 6 from 1pm.

People are needed to help out on the day, donate prizes for the raffle or tombola, make cakes for the tea stall or give a tin or jar to the food hamper prize.

You can speak to the leaders or call Jacky on 01797 253228.

Draw tickets are available at 50p each.

If you can help keep the Scouts going call Jacky or email her at willowshaw22@gmail.com.
