Parent Rota

​Beavers and Cubs operate a parent rota. All parents are asked to help once a term. You can sign up to the parent rota on OSM Parent Portal.

Investiture and Promise

After a few weeks in the section, Beavers, Cub and Scouts are Investitured, which is joining ceremony where we welcome them to the group.


At an investiture a scout makes a Promise. There are a number of variations of the Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes, and nationalities, in the UK within Scouting.

What do volunteers do?

This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship. If you could help please speak to your leader about volunteering.

Safety and Child Protection

  • Young people thrive in safe surroundings. We’re committed to ensuring that Scouting is both enjoyable and safe for everyone who takes part, along with providing parents with peace of mind.

  • For more information view our Safe and Sound leaflet for parents.

  • Also see our key policies and complaint procedure.
