September Crofton Beacon Article

The summer break is the time when traditionally Scouting Leaders take a well-earned break from organising
and facilitating challenging, exciting and stimulating activities. So now is an ideal time to thank them all for
doing exactly that and to thank them in advance for the forthcoming year’s programme. Crofton Scout Group is
a well-established and popular group, with some members staying with the group all the way from the Beaver
Colony through to the Scout Troop and other members joining at different points along their scouting journey.
Everyone is welcome to join us, irrespective of gender, need or cultural background and we aim to ensure the
movement is open and accessible to all and that people are treated equally and with respect. We are an
inclusive Group which embraces diversity and shares the Scouting Association’s vision that “Scouting is an
inclusive, values based movement and membership is open to all those who share our fundamental values”.
Adult volunteers  play a vital group in ensuring the success of the group; from the Scout Leaders and their
Assistants  who help to deliver the programme of camps, narrowboat trips and (the ever popular) wide
games each week,  to our executive committee members including Diane, who is a whizz at completing
yet another grant application form to help fund the activities we provide,  to Julie our Treasurer who ensures
we keep all the group’s finances in order and spend that money wisely!
We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds and experiences; from people who are able to offer their support
every week to help run the amazing camps to others who can offer an hour from time to time to help support
the fundraising needed to ensure the group’s ongoing success. If you are interested or would just like more
information,  or if you support a young person who would like to come and try Scouting for themselves please
email info@croftonscouts.org.uk  and we will ensure the right person  gets back to you. 

Yours in scouting
Joanna Burton

Crofton Scout Group Secretary
