Our adult volunteers wear a necker, or some call it scarf, its the colourful cloth hung around the neck, held together with … yes we still call it a woggle! Or some tie it with the friendship knot.

Who are these people? What do they do? Why do they do it?

As Scouts, we’re proud to have a wide range of volunteers who give up their time to support us in a variety of roles or tasks. Whether they directly support young people, or volunteer behind the scenes, as a volunteer manager, treasurer or fundraiser, they are ALL important to us! Then there’s the valued support from many who do tasks to support Scouting, from cutting grass at Scout headquarters, giving help with a grant application, sourcing professionals to do fire extinguisher and electrical checks, towing kit to camps, doing admin, shopping for scout resources, manning the car-park, and on and on.

Scouting only happens when a whole team of people offer their skills and time, and just get stuck in. Will you join us?
