Parental support – We need you
Because we are a voluntary run group, it is important that we have support from all parents if the group is to continue running as it should. We have a parent’s rota system, which involves infrequently attending meetings.
Please note that school children are very welcome to attend with their parents, however toddlers are not allowed for their own safety.
The Scouting movement requires all parent helpers to complete a CRB check.
