Adult Information Evening

The Scout Group wants to continue to deliver Scouting to as many young people as possible. To meet the demand, we are reaching out to the local community to see if we can achieve this together.

We are inviting any adult who is interested to come along to a informal meeting to find out more about helping the Scout Group in a volunteer role, and how that could benefit them.

Children of parents who volunteer for the Scout Group will be given priority on the waiting List. Volunteering can also be flexible to fit in with you. So please do come along on
Thursday 3rd May at 7.30pm at Bonnyrigg Scout Hall, 13 Eldindean Road, Bonnyrigg. EH19 2HJ  Google Maps:  to find out more

If you cannot make that evening, you can contact Richard Fairbairn, Group Scout Leader direct, email or phone 07791599707
