19th Kingswood 1st Warmley Scout Group

Warmley Bristol

Your story

We are a small local scout group providing activities for boys and girls aged 6 yrs-14 yrs in three sections- Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. We provide a varied and exciting programme for youngsters through following the scout programme for enrichment of all individuals making them develop into more responsible, understanding and caring young people within our community.

Group introduction

We are a scout group run by a small dedicated number of adult volunteers who give up their time for the benefit of enriching the lives of boys and girls from 6-14 yrs old. We also encourage young leaders (14-18yrs old ) and those wanting public service for DofE awards to get involved in volunteering their time . 2 of our leaders have been with us for around 30 years .Our Beaver section is one of the oldest established in the UK. Our group is simply about giving fun and friendship to our young members who can learn and develop safely with others.

How would this funding have an impact on your community?

We would split the funding as follows:
1- repairs to our main marque. Used for group and section activities as a main dining shelter and general mess room. This has suffered from weather damage and is in need of professional repair.
2- Buy an additional small sleeping tent - to offer outdoor activities to all our section members.
3- Developing a web site to publicise our Group through out the community.

"Our aim is to give our young members the chances to undertake new and challenging activities and through that gain enjoyment, fun and self confidence for this part of their journey through life's experiences. Grassroots Giving would help us to continue with our aims. Bob Pace - Beaver Leader 19th Kingswood 1st Warmley Scout Group"
