Can you help Ashbourne’s cubs and scouts?

AN ASHBOURNE cub pack is in danger of closure if leaders and volunteers cannot be found to help run it.

Leaders at the Second Ashbourne Scout Group are trying to find new people to come forward and help run its groups, which currently meet on Mondays and Tuesdays and are over-subscribed.

The Monday evening cub pack, which has a waiting list of cubs wanting to join, currently needs to find people that can run the group and leaders are keen to hear from anyone interested in taking part.

Dean Bradley, of Second Ashbourne Scouts, said: “The group is very strong and we currently have a waiting list but we need people to join our leadership team if it is to continue.

“In an ideal world we would like to start a third pack but for that we’d need another volunteer who would be willing to give up an evening per week during term time.

“Anyone interested would need to have a CRB check and training is available.

“If they have specific skills to bring to the role that’s great but it’s not essential, we’d just like to hear from any people that might be interested in helping out.”

Across the Beavers, Cubs and Scout groups more than 180 youngsters are involved in the various packs and groups in Ashbourne, with more than 50 currently on a waiting list.

To find out more about the roles available or how to get involved in the Cub Scout movement in Ashbourne visit the group’s website at ashbournescouts.co.uk or speak to the group’s ‘skip’ Paul Elliott.
