A big Scout Group like 1st Cookham is always in need of more help.  We have a variety of roles both working with our sections and working behind the scenes on admin, fundraising and looking after our premises.  Cookham are a friendly group, welcoming to new people, and we will provide all the training needed to take up any role.  For those helpers between 18 and 25 there is also the opportunity to continue working on the Queen’s Scout Award and the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.

Currently, we are particularly keen to get additional help with:

  • Running Cookham Explorer Scouts, our section for 14- 18 year olds
  • Helping with the maintenance of our Headquarters, anything from doing occasional gardening to managing major improvement projects.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
