Executive Committee

The Executive Committee
The Executive committee made up of parents is an integral part of our group; in fact as laid out within POR (The Scout Association Policy of Organisation & Rules) we are not allowed to operate as a group without one.
The Group Executive Committee exists to support 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 person, property and equipment
  • Group public occasions;
  • Assisting with the recruitment of leaders and other adult support
  • Organising social events
We meet approximately six times a year, usually at The Anchor pub on the corner of Seymour Gardens or at someone’s house on a weekday evening. The meetings are run with the aid of an agenda and minutes are taken. However they are informal and very sociable.
During your child’s time with the Group it is expected that one parent from each family will serve at least one term of office (a year) as a parent representative on the Group Executive Committee. The input of a parent on the committee is invaluable to ensure that the committee represents the views and ideas of all parents’ families. 
The role can be shared between the two of you as fits in best with your family.
The Scout organisation is one that we choose for our children to belong to – unlike school. All of the leaders give their time to our children without pay and it is not just for 1½ hours a week. Many weekends are given up for First Aid training, running activities and camps to name but a few. The leaders are very committed to our children and in return they need your support.

Role descriptions
The group is a charity, and members of the committee become trustees of the charity during their period of service.  Without any trustees, the we cannot legally function, which is why it is so important that everybody takes their turn.  This year in particular we urgently need members to fill these roles:
The scout association provides detailed support for group executive members
