Scouts and Explorers need you!

Date: 2nd Feb 2022 Author: Matthew Ruddle

Are you looking for a new challenge for 2022?


If you can help us provide wonderful experiences for young people in Long Hanborough and Freeland please do get in touch!


Our Scouts and Explorers groups both meet on Friday evenings and we need extra pairs of hands to help us to keep these groups running. Helping out just once or twice a month as a volunteer leader would make the world of difference to us.


No experience is necessary as all training is provided, and you will be fully supported by our amazing team.


Send an email to Steve: to find out how you can get involved as a volunteer.



We rely on people like you playing their part to give young people in our villages opportunities to dream big, give it a go and build skills for life.


You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer! We’re looking for people to help out in all sorts of ways, but particularly with our Scouts and Explorers.


Scouting happens when a lot of us give a little. You’re not signing up for a lifelong commitment; just to help out when and where you can. Even a couple of hours of your time once a month can make a huge difference!




Oh, and volunteering is a two-way street; research shows that it improves your wellbeing and helps you build career-boosting skills. Let us know you’re interested, and we’ll give you the support and training you need to let your skills shine.


We offer so many wonderful opportunities for young people in our communities, including activities such as fishing, cooking, camping, climbing, gliding and hiking as well as all the usual badge challenges like photography, astronomy, first aid and cycling. We can’t do any of these without you!



Get in touch by sending an email to Steve, our group leader, for more information about how you can get involved:

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