The Group Executive
This committee of volunteers look after the Scout Centre and provide the administration for the Group so that the Leaders can concentrate on the youngsters. There is always a warm welcome awaiting fresh volunteers willing to give up a couple of hours a month.
One of the main roles of the Group Exec is Fund Raising.
The Scout Group is a very expensive operation to keep running and without our Fund Raising activities subscriptions for the youngsters would be so high that many could not afford to attend.
We have a number of regular activities which include:
- 3 Jumble Sales each year. Run jointly with the Copthorne Guide units in March, June and October.
- Stalls at the Village Carnival in June – Plate smashing, Coconut Shy and Candy Floss.
- the Annual Family Bonfire & Firework Display in November .
- Autumn Fair or Christmas Market
All of these need lots of bodies – so why not have some fun and help. Volunteers are always welcome.
