Scouting cannot happen in Ilkeston without the dedication of all its leaders and helpers. Volunteering can be as flexible as you need, In fact we are currently looking for a new team leader for Ilkeston – interested?, see contact details below.
Throughout the district we are having an influx of new enquiries for young people to enjoy the benefits of Scouting, however we can’t deliver the adventure without extra pairs of hands, if you can spare anytime please get in touch via email: [email protected]. Or call Diane on 0115 9329979. We are happy to answer any questions.
