Section Leader

Building dens is a real treat when you are eight, and even more fun when you are an adult! We

need you to come along to Cubs and support our young people. Not just den building, but

help do map work, craft, hiking and even make stuff from bits of wood (we call that

pioneering). What we need is an extra pair of hands to help the leaders provide these fantastic

activities. Interested in helping at Cubs . Are over 18 and wanting to help run evenings on a

Tuesday evening? Getting in touch

Have you ever been donutting in November? Our Beaver Scouts have! Building dens, rockets,

tents indoors, mini beast hunts and Superheroes, the only limit is our imagination as we plan

our activities. This is where you come in! We need an extra pair of hands, eyes and even feet!

We’d like you to help with craft activities, help judge games and explain things when they

don’t quite know the rules. If you can give us one hour twice a month to help out at Beavers it

would make a big difference. Interested in helping at Beavers on a Wednesday
