January 2021 news

Date: 21st Jan 2021 Author: Matthew Ruddle

Last year was challenging for us as a group and it looks like 2021 will be no easier.

We still need more volunteers to help us serve the youth of Hanborough and Freeland.

Currently all activities are taking place online only until the government changes the rules. We are very fortunate to have a fantastic team of leaders and volunteers but we do need extra hands to lighten the load.

Our group is very active, providing all kinds of wonderful experiences for young people in Hanborough and Freeland, and that is all down to our volunteers that keep everything going.

To get involved get in touch via our contact page or send an email to gsl@hfscouting.org.uk to express your interest.

You do not need any previous experience of Scouting, but a love of working with young people is vital, and a sense of adventure! You will receive lots of help and support from our other group leaders and the Executive Committee, and training is provided. We will be with you every step of the way.

It is not an exaggeration to say that we will struggle to carry on without new volunteers.

On a positive note we need to say a big thank you to everyone that supported the Hanborough Christmas Post in December. We received over £200 in donations!

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