The Scouts have been working very hard on their navigation skills over the past few weeks and have just completed their first dump and hike, where they were dropped in an unknown location and had to find their way back. All patrols got back eventually!
Over the coming weeks we will be learning the skills needed to plan and run a scout camp.
Also don’t forget to visit our milkshake stand at this year’s Taverham fayre.

The Beavers had a visit from Jane & Nick Moore, from GATE (Gambian Aid Through Education. They showed the Beavers photos of how children live in the Gambia, and how money they raise in their Beaver Bring & Buy stall transforms their lives.

Taverham Scout Group provides a comprehensive and fun weekly programme to around 100 boys and girls from 6 years upwards. As part of our volunteer team we are seeking volunteers for some key roles:
Chairman for the Group Committee
The Group Executive committee meets about 4 times per year and manage all aspects of building management, fundraising and infrastructure of Scouting in Taverham enabling the section leaders to deliver their exciting programme of activities for the children. We have a dedicated and experienced team of volunteers in role but seeking someone in the role of Chairman to work and lead the committee.
Group Scout Leader
The Group Scout leader leads and works with the Section leaders in delivering the fantastic programme to youngsters in Taverham. This is a management role and doesn’t need a regular weeknight commitment but agreeing the best way to support the leaders in those roles.
The biggest problem at Taverham Scout Group is the number of children wanting to join but can’t. These children want to leave the X-Box behind, park the PlayStation and get outside with friends to enjoy Scouting. But they aren’t able to….Why?…..Because we don’t have enough adults to give that capacity. We have sections ranging from Beaver Scouts at 6 years old to Scouts up to 14 years old. If you are able to make a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evening during term time we would love to see you.
So…..if you are 18+ and want to give something to your local community then please get in touch.
Experience: Non needed
Hours of work: variable
Usual Disclosure checks are carried out on all adults volunteering.
