VOLUNTEER VACANCIES 

Glenny Wood new team roles.


Glenny Wood is a very popular Scout Campsite, and is used by many, many young people for Fun, Learning and Development. Scouts, Guides, D of E groups, Schools and Universities use our site and it’s fabulous to see the fun and variety of activities going on. 


To further develop Glenny Wood we need to extend our small and friendly team. The roles below are essential for the smooth and effective running of our site, so ensuring those using Glenny have a fabulous time.


Those volunteering will be welcomed into the team, supported, helped and provided with training as necessary. Equipment to undertake the role again can be provided as necessary......


So why not volunteer with us, it’s good fun and rewarding. If you are interested then contact Phil on either phil@glennywood.org.uk or on 01275562102 (sorry no texts)....


There will be a short appointment process and those helping at Glenny Wood need to hold a current Scouting DBS clearence. This we can arrange if not held.
