What will you be doing?

Want to make a real difference to your community?  

Scouts is where young people make new friends, have amazing adventures and learn new skills. The Trustee Board ensures that the Group:

  • Manages risks.
  • Helps the Scout Group operate well today and in the future.

     

Exciting Changes Ahead!

The Scout Association is currently transforming the way Scout Groups are managed.  The aim is to clearly define operational scouting from governance.  As part of this restructuring, Hagley Ramblers Scout Group is recruiting new Trustees.  We are keen to recruit a Group Treasurer to manage the Group Finances.
