Scouting for Adults

Many of us will recall with affection our time in the Cubs, Scouts, Brownies or Guides.
My personal scouting history was mixed.

I was thrown out of the Brownies a number of times. Despite my best efforts, they were constantly insistent that only girls could join, and that wearing a skirt did not constitute a change of gender.

After this, I joined the Cubs and managed to become a 'Sixer' with an arm full of proficiency badges. I remember enjoying 'Bob a Job Week' at a time when it was considered OK for kids to talk to adults, and visa versa. I also remember vividly being on camp reluctantly doing the washing up, when Akela sent me to the camp shop for some 'Elbow grease'!
During these formative years the Cubs & Scouts taught me some handy skills, discipline, respect, independence and which was the correct way that the Union Jack should be flown.

I suspect that we would all like the young people in the village to experience the same, and with a little bit of effort, you can make sure they do.

Milford and Keyhaven Scout Group are very short of adult volunteers and our local Scout Leaders need people to to help or lead meetings, and to organize charity fund-raising.  They also we need experienced sailors to teach the children how to sail, so they can keep the long heritage of Sea Scouting at Milford and Keyhaven.

If you can spare a few hours to give some of your life experience to our local young people, please click here to contact Matthew. Simply e-mail him your contact details and he will get in touch to chat things through.
