One of the most popular Scout Groups in Buckinghamshire are on the lookout for more volunteers.

The 1st Holmer Green Scout Group has over 70 children in the group, but they are in need of more adults to open another Cub Pack (for boys and girls aged eight to 10) so the Beavers (boys and girls aged six to eight), due to influx of new members.

This will enable children to move up into the next section when they reach their eighth birthday.

James Palin, lead volunteer for Buckinghamshire Scouts said: “As we continue to move out of the pandemic, more and more children want to join Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

“Many adults have had to change their work patterns and in some cases that may free them to help children grow and develop.

“Whatever time you can give to help children develop, we would find a role for you.

“Being a volunteer with us will give you the opportunity to share some of your skills and knowledge with others, will give you an opportunity to learn new skills, you will make new friends and you will give lots of opportunities to do activities you are unlikely to do elsewhere.”

Nine-year-old Evie then added: “Cubs is great.

“Activities at the headquarters, trips to go paddle boarding and abseiling are brilliant.

“Cubs is so much fun with great leaders.

“Some of the badges we can get are cooking, pioneering, craft, digital citizen, disability awareness and sports enthusiast.”
