The Team

Scouting wouldn’t exist without the skills and enthusiasm of thousands of unpaid adult volunteers.

The Group is run by a Group Scout Leader, who manages each of the five Section Leaders. Our Section Leaders are assisted by Assistant Leaders, Instructors and Explorer Scout Young Leaders. All of the Leaders at 2nd Cuddington undertake a continuous modular training scheme enabling us to meet the demands of young people today – this also includes full First Aid training. We are also lucky enough to have an ‘in-house’ team of PCV qualified coach drivers who undertake regular medical examinations.

Managing the ‘business affairs’ of the Group we have a Group Chairman, who works closely alongside the Group Treasurer and the Chairpersons of our Sub-Committees. The Group Executive Committee is made up of members of the Leader Team and parent representatives from each Section.
