Firstly, a big THANK YOU to  everyone that helped deliver the Christmas post in Long Hanborough last month. 50% of the money raised was for Sobell House and 50% for our groups; we’ll let you know the figures soon.

As we start this new year, we are in need of new volunteers to help keep our groups running smoothly. Our current Beaver leader, Keith (also known as Bear) is stepping down, due to a change in circumstances which means he is not always available to run the Beaver sessions on Wednesday evenings, at Freeland Village Hall.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Keith for the dedication and hard work that he put into being the Beavers leader. All the Beavers children enjoyed their experiences with him, and we wish him well for the future.

This means that we are looking to find somebody to take over Keith’s Beaver Leader role as soon as possible, and we also need extra assistant leaders to join and support our Beaver colony.

Children that join Beavers are lucky enough to enjoy a wide range of fun and engaging activities which really benefit them in so many ways. We cannot provide these opportunities without volunteer leaders, so we really do need you!

There is a lot of support available to help for our volunteers, including the leaders from other sections, our Group Scout Leader (Adam), the Executive Committee who work hard behind the scenes, and also the West Oxfordshire Scout District.

To find out more information about how you can support the Beavers group, or to hear more about what is involved in becoming a member of our leadership team, then please contact our Group Scout Leader, Adam by sending him an email to: gsl@hfscouting.org.uk

Alternatively visit the Contact page to send us your details.

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