The Exec.


The Group Executive Committee plays a vital role in the running of a Scout Group. Executive Committees make decisions and carry out administrative tasks to ensure that the best quality Scouting can be delivered to young people in the Group.

It is at the AGM that we establish our Scout Group Executive Committee. The Committee is an opportunity for parents (and other members of the community) to contribute to the ongoing running of the Group; offering support to the Leaders who give up so much of their time, as well as serving a practical purpose, in helping with the upkeep of the building, running of the group and offering assistance needed to those Leaders.

Being involved in the Scout Group Executive Committee is very worthwhile and the Leaders greatly value the support shown by all its members. Being a member can be as involved as you wish; from attending the 3 or 4 meetings we have a year, to holding an official position such as Chair or Secretary.

We are so grateful to those who have served on the Committee for the past 12 months and hope they can continue to do so into the future, but we do need more members. We presently have no Chair, Secretary or Bookings Secretary, and few general members.

We would dearly ask that all parents consider if they can offer up, what amounts to little more than one hour a term to become members of the Executive Committee, and support the Leaders in all they do. Anyone who feels that they might also be in a position to help with one of the official positions of Chair, Secretary or Bookings Secretary, please do speak to us or get in touch to discuss what it might involve.
