Join a winning team!

I am pleased to report that our numbers have increased. We submitted our group numbers with 165 young people and 54 adult volunteers which means we have the grand total of 219 people involved in 21st Nursling and Rownhams. This is a 5.3% increase on the previous year where we had 166 young people and 42 adult volunteers (total of 208 people involved in the group). I would like to say thank you for supporting the group and to the adult volunteer leaders for their help and support throughout the year, making 21st one to be proud of. Without their support and enthusiasm, we would not be able to provide a great, fun and adventurous scouting journey for your child.

If you would like to help then please use our adult joining enquiries form.

We are always looking for additional people to join our team and help us provide lasting memories for our young members.

You can do this in many ways:

  • By becoming an occasional helper which allows you a flexible way of providing your support.
  • By becoming a leader and being a part of our weekly meetings in a more structured way and giving the other leaders additional support in numbers allowing for illness and other commitments which at times make it difficult for leaders to attend meetings.
  • By becoming a member of our executive team and assist with the administrative side of running the Group. This could be as Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary or looking at opportunities for Fundraising.
  • You can also volunteer to help with the admin for a particular section, taking the pressure off the leaders.
  • We also need parent reps for each section which are part of the exec team.
  • Attend a meeting and demonstrate a skill. This could be anything from craft, mechanical, circus, wood working or anything else that is interesting, educational and introduces a different experience to our young people.
  • Help us with maintaining our gear and hut and improving our facilities.
