Join The Adventure!

There are currently a range of exciting opportunities available within the District, all to help deliver and support Scouting to our Young People.

District Cub Leaders

To support the ADC Cub Scouts in the effective operation of the Cub Scout section. A great alternative to a weekly group commitment.

OSM Support

The District needs to provide support for Section Leaders using Online Scout Manager, together with managing the District Dashboard. This role could be suitable for someone currently not in Scouting but with IT skills. It is a role that requires little or no direct contact with Young People.

Appointments Advisory Committee (AAC) Members

The District has a small pool of adults who interview potential Leaders and those changing roles. These volunteers come from within Scouting, but also the wider community with ‘organisational’ or HR backgrounds.

Huish Woods Active Support

The crew is highly visible when helping with car parking at big events at the Campsite, but there are wide-ranging opportunities to support the site which are not always so high profile. For instance, on Wednesday mornings some members spend a couple of hours helping with site maintenance – no two weeks are ever the same! Tasks are definitely not limited to Wednesdays and we would happily see anyone any day if they can spare time for pruning back hedges, clearing leaves, repairing fences, painting, moving logs, etc. These are ideal roles for anyone who fancies spending some quality time in a lovely location! Please spread this around to anyone you know that has time on their hands!

Media Team Members

If you are interested in video editing, photography, journalism, radio, social media etc we want to hear from you! We are actively looking to form a media team to help promote Scouting in Blackdown. Please contact us at media.blackdown@gmail.com for more information.

Early responses would be appreciated for the above roles. Please contact Blackdown DC, Pam Gaines via dc.blackdown@gmail.com or 01984 624657 / 07855 125877 for a more detailed discussion.

Please help us to support Scouting in Blackdown.
