After Several years of amazing service our current secretary is stepping down for a well deserved rest and some relaxation time. I’m sure he would disagree πŸ˜…This means we have an opening on our executive committee for a secretary role (voluntary). This means you get to come and be part of the madness that is our quarterly Exec meetings with quality tea and coffee. Sometimes we even get biscuits. The arguments are always passionate and for the good of the campsite and everyone eventually agrees to what I want 😬So, fancy a new exciting role in scouting? Send us a message!
