Scout Active Support News




Who are we?

We are a group of adults who support Scouting in Woking. We are part of Woking District and have our own Manager and co-ordinators.

Who can belong?

Anyone from the age of 18 upwards who has an interest in Scouting, whether or not they have made the Scout or Guide Promise. All members have to be CRB checked and undertake Module 1 of the Leader Training and hold an up-to-date First Aid qualification.

What do we do?

We provide 'Active Support' at District events to Beaver Scout Colonies, Cub Scout Packs, Scout Troops and Explorer Scout Units. We can provide occasional help to warranted leaders at weekly meetings. We help at County Events such as Bazzaz, Scram, Scoutabout, night hikes and training days. Members with particular practical skills and knowledge can provide a valuable service as Advisors. We have an active social life involving meals out, quizzes, talks, visits and outings.

Where do we meet?

We meet on the second Tuesday of each month, excluding August, at our District Headquarters at the Hoe Valley Community Building in Woking Park, at 8pm unless a change of venue or time has been previously notified.

How do I join?

Please contact the District Commissioner on email: dc@wokingscouts.org.uk

Alternatively, if you are a leader at present, you can contact us via your ADC.

We always warmly welcome new members.
