Adult volunteers

All the Groups leaders are volunteers. They give their time for free. But they are trained volunteers - the Scout Association has a thorough training programme that all Leaders have to undertake.

All leaders have to undergo a full Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) criminal records check, supply personal references and be approved by an Adult Appointments Committee before their first appointment.  Appointments are also subject to regular review and renewal.

We aim to have a minimum of three adults at every meeting, and require parents / carers to join our parent rota, so that they are helping with 1 session in every 6 weeks as a minimum.

All parents on the parent rota will be signed up as occasional helpers and get involved, (subject to DBS / CRB check). If you have a particular skill or hobby that you would be prepared to share with the Group then please do let us know and we'll consider how you could help as an activity instructor.  Of course, if there are parents who would like to get involved on a more regular basis, then we'd love to have that help and support. It’s not all working directly with the scouts, there are plenty of back room type jobs that always need doing like gardening, keeping the accounts, fundraising and managing our communications.

Cubs Scouts visited the Salvation Army - 02nd February

Cubs had a wonderful time visiting Alison & her team at the Salvation Army as part of their World Challenge Badge.
We learnt about the amazing things the Salvation Army do for people in the community and everybody brought something to donate to the food bank.
What a wonderful evening!

What a load of rubbish!

Cubs & Scouts visit Shanks Recycling Centre - 16th Feb 2017
Cubs & Scouts had the fantastic opportunity to visit Shanks Waste Disposal centre at Bolton-Upon-Dearn to see what happens to all of the rubbish we throw away from Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham.
We played a recycling game and learnt how our waste is turned into fuel bricks which are then transported to the energy centre near Castleford.  You have probably seen it - the one just off of the A1M.
