Message from 1st Marlow Bottom Scouts

Do you have children currently in Scouting in Marlow Bottom? Or are you a future parent/carer who will have? Do you live in Marlow Bottom and have a keen interest in scouting?

As you may know, 1st Marlow Bottom Scouts (which covers Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) has currently suspended all units until further notice due to the lack of support.

A Group AGM is planned for Tuesday 6th February at Burford School, starting promptly at 7.30pm, to determine the future of the Group. At this meeting we would like to invite all interested parties to attend in order to understand what people want from the sections, what support you can give to Scouting in Marlow Bottom and appoint the critical roles needed to resurrect the groups.

In order for the group to continue functioning, we urgently need to appoint a new Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer at that AGM.  In addition to this; we also need additional Leadership roles to be taken up.  Many of you have come forward already, which is excellent, but we still need more support.

We would also like to start up a parent rota, to help out at section meetings, and enable the young people to enjoy the full range of scouting activities.

The future of 1st Marlow Bottom Scouts is hanging in the balance; as without additional support we will be forced to make the difficult decision to close the Group. To that end, we encourage you to attend the AGM – we are aware that it conflicts with the Rebellion Public/Open Night; but were unable to find an alternative date and location.
