of the children that you would enjoy most to help with -
Beavers are 6 to 8 years old, Cubs are aged 8 to 10 or
Scouts aged 10 to 13 no previous experience is necessary

for the children and presents its own challenges and

occasional help with maintaining the building and grounds.

(£12 p.a.), or by doing some occasional gardening, please
