2nd Beeston Sea Scouts is a unique scout group that has many opportunities for adults to become involved with a wide range of activities.
Most scout groups just have a headquarters building where activities for the young people take place.
While we do have a headquarters building, we also a workshop, boat sheds, various boats, kayaks and canoes, and an island activity centre. Beyond these we have also adopted a recycling centre and have stewardship of a section of the River Trent.
If that was not enough, we also have a growing track record of putting on community events such as the Beeston Picnic in the Park, Beeston Race Night and water activity taster sessions.
Helping with the young people
The core of any scout group is the young people. The section leaders always appreciate additional support from parents and other adults.
If helping with the young people is something you are interested in, more information is available.
In common with all other Scout groups, we rely on fund raising to provide and maintain the building, provide the equipment for all the activities enjoyed by the Sections. Unlike most other Scout Groups, we also the costs associated with maintaining the Barton Island water activity base, and the boats, kayaks and safety equipment.
If you would like to help with any of our current fund raising activities, or have ideas for one you would like to run then please get in touch.
Special skills assistance
The group has several buildings to maintain as well as an island, several boats, out-board engines, kayaks and miscellaneous other bits of equipment and facilities. In addition the Group runs various outdoor activities, both water and land based.
If you have any specialist professional skills, with appropriate accreditations, and you can spare a few hours per week, per month, or as time permits, then please get in touch.
The sort of skills that could benefit the Group include:
- qualified water-based skills instructor
- steel fabrication
The Executive Committee supports the Scout group in delivering its programme of activities, including organising fund raising events. Parents are encouraged to join the Executive Committee to help manage and support the Group. If you are interested please contact the Group Chairman.
