There's so much to tell about Volunteering at our Scout Group and being part of the UK's biggest Youth Organisation - The Scout Association -  we've written a "Job Advertto show you. So if you - or anyone you know - might be interested in Volunteering for our Thursday night Beavers, please read on.

The Beavers have already had to pick spring onions, carrots and spinach early!
So we have now had to plant lots of new vegetables in their place!
Quite soon we will have to dig up all our new potatoes for all the families to enjoy with their summer salads and new Strawberry plants have been planted this month and are already starting to produce some big strawberries!"
