Scout Groups always have need for more help and we are no exception! If you would like to help with this friendly local scout group please do make contact with the Acting Group Scout Leader (Paul Symons) either in person on a Friday night or by email at 'gsl at 18thedmonton.net' (change at for @).
Below are some of the roles we would like to fill but this list is not exhaustive so if you have some other skill you feel we could use please feel free to ask. All these roles are voluntary but we do reimburse for legitimate expenses.
We operate on a flexible basis so we do not expect you to have to be present every Friday night. If you feel you would like to volunteer but do not have every Friday night free please come and talk to us and we will work around the time you feel you can give.
