Members of the Scout and Guide Society for the University of Nottingham have met with representatives from the SW Notts and City Scout Districts and the Beeston Division of Girlguiding UK at the university’s Portland Building to explore ways in which students can volunteer with Scouting and Guiding whilst at university. Over 20 students attended the meeting.
We identified Groups and Explorer Units that were seeking help and there was a positive response from the students after the meeting. We are hoping to receive offers of help soon.
We hope to maintain close links with SSAGO throughout the year and in the future.
