Ready for an adventure?

A SCOUT group is looking for new leaders to help its members on new adventures.

Camping, rifle shooting, axe throwing, ice skating, paddle boarding, archery, woodwork, hikes and code breaking are just a few of the activities that members of the 78th Kingswood Scout Group have undertaken in the last year.

Tim Warren, from the group, said: “We want to hear from you, if you like the idea of volunteering to be part of our amazing scouting team and to partake in our exciting experiences. We are a very active scout group, with over 50 beavers, cubs and scouts.

“We would love to provide fun and excitement to even more young people who are on our waiting list, but we need extra energetic and creative adult helpers to make it happen. If you enjoy interacting with young people, working in a team and having fun, then you might just be the right person. Don’t worry about experience, training or not having been in scouts before as we provide all the training you need.

“No matter how little time you can commit, it would be great to hear from you.”

The 78th Kingswood group is one of the oldest in the area, having been founded in 1959.

The group’s beavers, cubs and scouts meet at Downend Methodist Church on Badminton Road every Wednesday evening.

Tim said: “Every year we organise a camping weekend for the entire group, which is a great chance for all the young people and leaders to have fun together, and the beavers, cubs and scouts have their own camp weekends as well.

“We are also very active in the local community, attending the Page Park Remembrance Parade, and helping the Downend Round Table with their fireworks display and Santa Sleigh.”
