Desperate Times 31 Jul 2016 Eynsham Scout Group is in grave danger of being closed. An urgent appeal from Trevor Winstone - please get in touch!

Dear Parents, Guardians, Relatives and Friends,

Eynsham Scout Group is in great danger of being closed. This week we lost our long term Group Scout Leader, Sue Greenwood, after many years of dedicated work in Scouting. I find myself back in the role of Chairman having resigned in April at the AGM due to work issues. Without these 2 key roles being filled it is inevitable the District will mothball the Eynsham Group, or maybe even close the Scout Group.

We also need assistance to run the Monday night Cub Pack and help with the Wednesday night Scout Troop.

Very few leaders within Scouting arrive with experience of Scouting in any form - all we ask for is enthusiasm for the role which lays ahead. The Scout Association provides training which is open to all adult members. As you learn you can also build skills which can help with gaining employment or career development.

Please ask anyone you know, who may be suitable, about these roles and get them to give me a call. If you want to help out but do not feel you can commit to every meeting, please get in touch as your help will be very welcome.

You will join a strong team who have provided many years of successful Scouting. If you are able to offer help in any way please call me on 01865 880990, or 0774 707 4649, or e-mail me at trevorwinst@gmail.com

Yours in Scouting,
Trevor Winstone, Acting Group Chairman, 1st Eynsham Scout Group
