New beaver group in Bushey needs volunteers

 Published on: 13th February 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Scout Association is calling for volunteers to help form a new beaver colony in Bushey. 

The new group has enough young people wanting to take part in the movement, but do not have the volunteers to run the group. 

Scouts is a worldwide movement that offers skills for life in a variety of different activities and experiences. The Watford South District, run by District Commissioner Christine Wright, has over 4,000 members from ages six to 25.

Recently, Christine spent a weekend camping with 50 scouts and 10 leaders at Gilwell park for a weekend of fun activities, this kicks off the scouting year for many Scout troops and young people want to return again and again. 

On why Christine joined, she said: “I joined scouting many years ago and understand the value of scouting, where working learning and having fun together across all communities and Faiths builds a strong foundation.”

A beaver leader added: “I joined scouts because my kids where involved and I wanted to help.”

Apart from camping, lighting fires and traditional elements of scouting, other activities include canoeing, kayaking, sailing, climbing and gliding, quadbike riding, games competitions, health and safety, arts and crafts and lots more.

Scouting is made up of five sections; Beavers six-eight years old, Cubs eight-10 years old, Scouts 10-14 years Old, Explorers 14-18 years old and Network 18-25 Years old.

The Bushey colony are looking to run this night from 5.30pm to 6.30pm on a weekday or for two hours every other Saturday after Easter. 

If you are interested in helping local young people by joining the Scouting adventure, contact District Commissioner Watford South District Christine Wright at or leave a message on 07917 340739.
