‚ÄčLeaders Wanted

Like most Scout Groups we are always on the look out for new Leaders. At the moment we urgently need Leaders and Assistant Leaders to help out on all our Section nights but any time that you can give would be much appreciated.

If you feel that you could offer your time and skills please contact our Group Scout Leader - Ron Ashton by emailing info@1stRipleyScouts.org or filling in the contact form here.


Children's Bike Wanted

This year we are entering the National Scout Car races, however so that we can take more Cubs and Scouts with us we need to find a children's bike that has 20'' wheels that we can have so that we can build a brand new car to take to the competition. If you have a bike that you are willing to donate please speak to one of our Leaders or email michaelhawley@1stRipleyScouts.org
