Wash and brush up.

Royston Group from Lyndhurst have recently helped the Group by spring-cleaning the outside of the building. 

Many thanks to Royston Group for their continued and generous support.  You can read about it here

We will remember them.

In this strange year Scouting has been very different, but we will still remember  those who, over the years, have made the greatest sacrifice to secure our freedom and way of life.  We have laid our traditional wreath at the Totton War Memorial off Salisbury Road, but unlike previous years this has been done alone by our Groups Scout Leader, Donna, who said it felt even more poignant  without the large crowds who normally gather for the wreath-laying.

We have just the job for you

We may not have had any meetings for a while, but that does not mean that Scouting has stopped.  Thanks to the hard work of our volunteer Leaders a fantastic programme of “Scouts at home” has kept our young members busy since the Covid-19 crisis started.  We are now working on plans to start meeting again in a safe way and we  have a number of volunteering (and one paid) vacancies to ensure we are able to offer the best Scouting experience.  Interested?  Then email volunteering@elingseascouts.org.uk now or contact us.

We are looking for a fully insured and checked Cleaner to take over regular cleaning of our building. If you know a reputable company that has availability please get in contact.

Building Manager

We are looking for someone to take over the role of Building Manager at our Scout Hut.

Do you have DIY skills that could mend and fix things as they happen, a knowledge of building that could help assist this well established Scout Group?

Activities included dealing with booking contractors and arranging for servicing of utilities making sure we are compliant with regulations.

May suit a semi-retired person!  You do not need to have a connection with the group.

Assistant Cub Leader

Can you build a den?  Building dens is a real treat when you are eight, and even more fun when you are an adult!

  • We need you to come along to Cubs and support our young people.
  • Not just den building, but help do map work, craft, hiking and even make stuff from bits of wood (we call that pioneering).
  • What we need is an extra pair of hands to help the leaders provide these fantastic activities.
  • Interested in helping at Cubs?

Scout Leader

Can’t do this as you are late home from work?

Scouts doesn’t start until 7.30pm…

You do not need to have a child in Scouts to become a regular helper at one of our Scout Troops, on a Monday or Friday.

Sailing, Kayaking, Air rifle shooting, climbing, fire lighting, camping and much more – the Leaders have as much fun as the Scouts and there are opportunities to learn new skills yourself.

 

We have a fantastic building alongside Testwood Lakes providing a superb base for water activities for our Scouts and also for Sailability.  When the building was constructed we only had sufficient funds to install heating in the main hall, meaning that our meeting room and more importantly, our changing and shower rooms are unheated.  We use the lake from early Spring right through until the Autumn, so for much of the year changing and showering can be daunting for our young members and the disabled users,  We are now looking to raise funds through the Avica Community Fund to extend our heating.  Please help us by pledging a donation however small (or large) by following this link.
