We need YOU!!!

Date: 18th Sep 2021 Author: Web Master


Hi everyone – welcome back from the Summer, and welcome back to “green” – The status that we have been waiting for since the start of COVID when pretty much ALL the restrictions have now been lifted.

Over the summer we have lost a few leaders – and it’s putting strain on the capacity of the rest of the Leaders – so ..   We need your help ..

Put it simply – we are DESPERATE for help

For anyone on the WAITING LIST – we will move you straight to the top of the waiting list …. but we need a commitment

  • Parent Reps on the ExCo – The Executive Committee – or ExCo ..  is the body that effectively runs the Charitable side of the Group – the buildings, fundraising, maintenance, etc.     We are one of the only groups in the County that doesn’t have any PARENT Reps on the ExCo and we want to fix that – in part because we need to hear the voice of parents .. and in part because there are a lot of parents out there with skills that we can use .  it’s NOT a uniformed role 🙂   The ExCo meetings once to twice a term for an hour or two.   Normally online, sometime at the hut, increasingly in a pub.
  • Fundraising – We’ve lost our on £5k of Income over the last year and we need to refill the coffers ..   even if we don’t move ahead with a new hut, we face a £25k maintenance backlog on the hut – toilets, kitchen, insulation, heating system, stores, new equipment etc.      I have tried to kick start this but with COVID we LOST momentum – I need a Parent to with a passion for raising money and having FUN to volunteer to help build a team ..    let’s have some fun!
  • COMMUNICATION – We urgently need volunteers to help with each section – particularly the CUBS and the SCOUTS in sending out the weekly program to parents – its takes no more than 30 minutes a week – but this small role has a HUGE benefit to leaders
  • Parent Rota – with some of the Leader Shortages – we will need to restart the Parent Rota we’ll have it in OSM but will also put out a call for help on email or Facebook  …. www.facebook.com/groups/1stCrowthorneScoutGroup/  We will need one or two parents – Especially for WEDNESDAY Cubs and TUESDAY Scouts – EVERY WEEK.   We don’t like to ask .. but we really do need you guys 🙂

PLEASE Get in Touch ….     If you have the Time and passion ..  we have the role [and we can create new ones as well!!]


Our group us STRONG, we are GROWING and we have amazing Leaders and Parents ..    COVID has hit us ALL hard.    We’ll be announcing the date for a social for everyone very soon.  – a gathering at the hut ..  a BBQ, fire, fund, food and drink …   just for us all to reconnect

The AGM will be held on ZOOM this year – and we will try to live stream it to Facebook – ALL Parents are warmly welcomed to attend to hear the work of the Group over the last year
