Byron Bay Scouts need you to lead

BYRON Bay Scouts' waiting list is bursting at the seams, with children ready to join up, but a shortage of leaders means many local kids may miss out on the fun of being a scout.

Put simply, Byron Scout needs more leaders.

The group now has 65 youth members ranging from age 6 to 18, and many, many more on the waiting list.

Byron Bay scout leader in charge Tim Winton said the local group needed more leaders.

"Scouts is a great experience for kids of all ages, helping them develop in all areas of their lives and instilling core values," he said.

"However, we need more adults to come on board as section leaders - people who love the outdoors and camping and just getting involved with the kids."

As an added bonus, the child of anyone joining as a group leader is immediately able to join the appropriate age group.

So if you have some free time and feel like contributing to Byron Bay's longest-serving youth group, contact 1st Byron Bay Scouts leader in charge Tim Winton at winton.tim@gmail.com.
