Scouting is good for you. Your wellbeing and your knowledge benefits from being part of the Scout movement as an adult volunteer or as a young person by learning new skills, supporting the community and meeting new people. I am very proud of the leaders in the Wenvoe Group, who have struggled to ensure that the boys and girls in the group have benefited from being Beavers (6-8 years), Cubs (8-10 ½ years) or Scouts (10 ½ -14 years) despite lockdowns over the last 14 months. As a result, they have learnt how to plan for and hold meetings via Zoom with the support of the Scout movement. Now they are looking at how they can safely return to face-to-face meetings. How we do this is controlled by the Scouting Movement and the Youth Council, so transition is controlled, and all feel safe.
Volunteers are always required as the Group develops locally. Training is available on line and face to face as Covid restrictions reduce. The Scouts offer a broad programme of youth training, which is supported by badges. If you would like to know more or to get involved, please contact me. You can see more information on the website www.scouts.org.uk . Volunteers can be 14 years or over and there is a wide range of activities from becoming a leader or meeting helper to serving behind the scenes. For young people it can count towards DofE awards and for those completing training as part of Youth Accredited Training
If you have young people, who want to get involved then email firstname.lastname@example.org. Older young people can join the Penarth Explorers (14-18 years) or Network (18-25 years).
To all those who have supported the Wenvoe Group, been leaders or helpers and to all the young people I would like to say a Big Thank You.
