As with all scout groups, our Cub pack and Scout troop are run by volunteer leaders, supported by a committee of experienced individuals who provide the necessary oversight and diligence required of any charity. As with any group, we are always stretched and always ready to welcome new volunteer adults to the group.

If you would like to explore helping out please drop in on a Thursday evening or drop us a line. There’s more information about what we typically do at: 4th EFS scout leader
