The Scout Group encourages Explorer Scouts to become Young Leaders and then to go to become fully appointed adult Leaders there are also a number of parents that have become Sectional Assistants and Leaders. There is a wide range of ages throughout the Leadership team of 30 Leaders and we encourage families and members of the local community to come forward.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
