4th Headstone Scout Group, which have many young members in Pinner, are urgently looking for more leaders to help run the group as meetings return and normal activities resume. Volunteers are needed for the Cub and Beaver sections of the organisation in particular.
Group Scout Leader Sammy Holliday Jackson said: “We rely on people playing their part to give young people opportunities. You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer. We’re looking for people to help out in all sorts of ways in our meeting place and behind the scenes.
“At the moment, we’d especially love some help with becoming a leader with our cub section, or beaver Section, tidying the scout hut grounds, painting and decorating the hut and fencing outside, organising and supporting fundraising activities.
“Volunteering Is a two-way street. Research shows that it improves your wellbeing and helps you build career-boosting skills. Let us know you’re interested, and we’ll give you any support and training you need to let your skills shine.”
Until June this year, the youth organisation was part of the Pinner and Headstone Scout District before merging to become part of the Harrow wider district.
One group volunteer said: “I started to help out when I moved to Harrow and it was a great way to make friends and feel part of the local community.”
