HASLEMERE and District Scouts will be mounting an adult recruitment drive, for adults of all ages and backgrounds who can give a little bit of time to help make a difference, outside Tesco on Haslemere’s Wey Hill, Haslemere tomorrow.

John Stone, spokesman for Haslemere and District Scouts, said there are many rewarding roles which can be fitted around work and home life for the adult volunteers helping Scouts and Cubs.

He said: “Scouting in the district is very strong with young people aged six – 25 trying to change lives and create a better world for us to live in, in fact some groups have such long waiting lists that many of the youngsters will never benefit from joining at an early age, which is a great shame.

“Uniformed Leaders are always wanted helping directly to plan and deliver exciting activities.

“These are often the most fun roles, and although groups meet each week, leaders can make a flexible commitment to helping to run the programme according to the time they have available. Even a couple of hours a month at a time to suit you, can make a big difference.”

Have you got management skills? Could you lead and support other adults in a group or district?

There are many other roles such as administrators, record keeping, ensuring subscriptions are paid and looking after finances, even helping to maintain headquarters.

John added: “Why not drop in on Saturday and see if there is anything you can do to help. You won’t regret it, for Scouting is very much a friendly, fun organisation. Thanks to Tescos store in Haslemere.”

Scouting is run entirely by volunteers, and takes place around seven locally groups based in Haslemere, Camelsdale, Chiddingfold, Churt, Fernhurst, Grayshott, and Hindhead.
