Growing problem

BENSON scout group wants to recruit more leaders so it can expand.

The group, which meets at the scout hut in Littleworth Road, has 45 beavers, cubs and scouts but another 25 children on its waiting list.

Leader Adam Wood said: “It’s wonderful to see how the kids learn and grow during their time with us — away from small-screen devices and other sofa-based distractions.

“However, we would love to expand and cater for the unmet need but we are severely limited by a lack of leaders.”

Mr Wood said there were three potential positions to fill — section leader and assistant section leader, which are uniformed roles, and section assistant. Training will be provided.
