An Explorer Scout section (ages 14 – 18) also uses our HQ.
Many of our volunteers are parents but we welcome help from outside the Group too. We offer flexible volunteering opportunities depending on how much time you can spare. If you would like to volunteer at 1st Woosehill please Volunteer Here.
The Leadership Team
Each section has a trained, warranted leader (authorised by the Scout Association) and usually at least one assistant leader, who are responsible for the weekly programme and all associated activities within their section. Their programmes are part of the Balanced Programme for 6 to 25 year olds, outlined by the Scout Association. Helpers move on and continually need to be replaced, so please consider Joining our Team.
