I am really please to announce that as 1st Burnham-on-Sea Scout Group we have been approved to start a Squirrel Drey within the Group.

This is a really exciting time, as we are getting to offer Scouting to more Young People in the community. Squirrels is a new section that is for 4 – 5 year olds within Scouting. This will start to teach Skills for Life which will be built on as Young People move up through the sections.

As a Group we have now opened up are waiting list to accept new eager squirrels, so if you or anyone you know would like to come along to squirrels please join or waiting list on the like below:

The day and time of the squirrels meeting hasn’t been confirmed yet and will be discussed with the Squirrel leaders prior to starting the section.

As always scouting doesn’t happen without the amazing team of leaders and committee members. And now we have this opportunity to run another section we need the leaders to run it. So if you or someone you know has Skills for Life or want to volunteer to help younger people grow please contact Toby Beard at gsl@burnhamonseacouts.org.uk. Even if you don’t have any idea about scouting and just want to help with 4-5 year olds or get involved, get in contact with Toby Beard at gsl@burnhamonseacouts.org.uk.

We will provide you with training and will help you through every aspect of running a squirrel or another section meeting. You will never be on your own and can always call on others to help you.

Can I ask one thing and that is that we all spread the word that we are looking for both new squirrels and squirrel leaders. Because without the Leaders we wont be able to start the squirrels section.
