But I’m a Girl. Can I join too?

Yes. We at the 12th welcome both boys and girls into our group. This is because the Scout Association operates an equal opportunities policy.

Who runs our group?

Apart from the day to day work done by the section leaders, such as programme planning and the actual running of the section meetings, the running of the group is split three ways.

The General running of the group is the responsibility of the Group Scout Leader. The Group Scout Leader is mainly responsible for the continuity and development of training in Sections of the Group and for supporting all the adults who work within the Group.

The Executive Committee supports the Group Scout Leader in meeting the responsibilities of their appointment.
The Committee is responsible for:
The maintenance of the Group’s property and equipment;
The raising of funds and the administration of the Group’s finance;
The insurance of persons, property and equipment;
Group public occasions; and
Assisting with the recruitment of Leaders and other adult support.

The Fundraising Committee is there to support the group financially by organising fundraising events and other group social events.
