Shouting for scouting

Help us open a Cub Scout Pack  in Amble, says the Scout movement. To do this they need your help!
Amble Beaver Scouts have taken part in an exciting year of activities since they were launched in April last year.
Meeting weekly at Amble First School, the young people, 6-8 year old boys and girls, have enjoyed a lively programme including games, going on visits, making new friends and getting crafty.

 Thanks to the support of Amble Town Council they have gone on a trip to Edinburgh Zoo and enjoyed a District day out at The Sanctuary with friends from Rothbury, Alnwick, Felton, Longhoughton and Rock.

Amble Scout Group is looking to expand by opening a Cub Scout Pack (young people aged 8-10). There are loads of fun things for Cub Scouts to do! Over the last year Cubs have camped, explored the local community, climbed, abseiled and gained lots of badges.

To open a Cub Pack they need your help! They are now identifying local people who can become volunteer leaders and help make this happen. Volunteering for Scouting gives adults’ the chance to try different activities, visit new places, make friends and learn new skills. A flexible approach allows volunteers to give as much or as little time they can spare. It could be an evening once a week or one weekend a year.
