Brechin Scouts are appealing for anyone with spare time to help keep the sections going by volunteering as adult leaders.

The organisation requires adult volunteers for the Scout and Beavers sections which are struggling for helpers.

The group is currently on a summer break but the middle of August sees the resumption of meetings for all three sections of the 1st Brechin (9th Angus) Scout Group.

While the group has a healthy membership of young people across the sections, it continues to face the challenge of keeping things going due to a lack of adult leaders.

In particular, the group urgently needs to recruit a leader for the Beaver section (for ages six to eight years).

They are also urgently seeking an assistant leader for the Scout section (for ages 10-and-a-half to 14-and-a-half).

Scouting offers a rewarding and challenging experience for adults and young people alike and membership is open to both boys and girls as follows:-

Beavers - ages six to eight years.

Cubs - ages eight to 10-and-a-half.

Scouts - ages 10-and-a-half to 14-and-a-half.

A spokesperson for the 1st Brechin Scouts Group commented: “2014 promises to be a particularly exciting year for the Brechin group with the cubs due to travel to both London and Dalguise, and the scouts to Switzerland.”

Richard Thompson, the Group Scout Leader, would be delighted to hear from any adults, male or female, who have a few hours a week to spare and would consider helping the group to keep the sections going.

If you are interest, please contact Richard on 01356 623839.

The meeting times for the groups are as follows:-

Beavers - Tuesday nights from 6 to 7 p.m.

Cubs - Thursday nights from 6.30 to 8.p.m.

Scouts - Monday nights from 7 to 9 p.m.

The purpose of the scouting movement is to contribute to the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
