So, you are the parent of a 'Scout'. What could be simpler - a bit of money each month, a few bob here and there for camps and things.

And a bit of spare time! Great.

Just for a moment let's consider another scenario.

Some parents actually want to know about this 'Scouting thing'. Try some of these articles:
The Sections;
History of the Movement;
History of Crosland Hill;
The 6 to 25 Scouting Programme;
How Scouting Grew.
  You will certainly want to know how safe your child is:
Young People First;
Criminal Record Bureau Checks;
CRB Policy;
Anti-Bullying Policy;
Child Protection;
Media & Website Policy;
You will find elsewhere what the youngsters get up to, but what is expected of you, the parent? Here are our ideas:
Parent Support;
Gift Aid;
'The Committee!';
  There are some forms we ask you to complete and return. Here they are:
The totally confidential Health & Information Form;
Gift Aid Declaration;
Standing Order Mandate for the monthly payment of subs;
Parental Help Form
You can now complete the Parental Help Form online.

There is more, much much more in the Parent Resource Pages. Please have a browse.

Finally, may we refer you to the ubiquitous "Mr & Mrs Else" followed by an explanation of your "Time".

Since this Group was closed I keep this site going as a tribute to the Group, its former members, and because of the vast amount of resources I built up over the years. To lose all this would be a travesty. I do all this at my own expense.

Should you find the site helpful and want to donate, please do so.
