Creating a Drey
There is a process to follow to open a new section and an expressions of interest should be submitted by Group Scout Leaders which will then be reviewed by the District Commissioner supported by the Area. If your Group would like to be considered for a Squirrels section please discuss as a Group and get your GSL to submit your expression of interest.
We are opening a limited number of sections to begin with, to make sure that there’s the right support in place. We are particularly encouraging those who can open Squirrels in communities where Scouting is currently under-represented and for now, only the Groups that have been agreed will be able to open Squirrels as unofficial provision will not be insured.
From the Area Team, Ruth Weltch has been appointed as Area Adviser for Squirrel Development and Jake Dowson as Area Youth Forum Representative.
Contact can be made via ; Squirrels@CardiffandValeScouts.org.uk
As you can see, we will be looking to grow Squirrels both in current Scout Groups and outside our current Scouting coverage. If you would interested in supporting a new section to get started please complete this form so we can get in touch with you as we move forward.
