At the end of each January Scout Group across the UK are required to take a census of members to submit to Headquarters.
This year 4th Ashby has grown by a third, largely due to the two new beaver colonies. Group Scout Leader, Jonathan Bloor was keen to thank the Regional Services Team of the Scout Association for their support in addressing the shortage of places in the town. “Working with our friends at Ashby (Hastings) and the RST, we’ve cleared over 100 names from our waiting lists,” Jonathan said. “I’m really pleased with the position we find ourselves in, although we have plans to continue to grow during 2018, especially for the 10-14-year-olds. We welcome volunteers, whether they have a Scouting background or not”.
At the time of writing (early Feb) places are available in Beavers (Ages 6-8) and Cubs (8-10 1/2), please register your interest by filling out the join form in the sidebar
