Scout group seeks new leaders

Swaledale Scout Group is looking for local people to join their leadership team.

The group is having an open day at Fremington Village Hall  on Saturday, March 9 from 11am to 3pm.

Organisers say people are invited to come along and find out more about the satisfaction and rewards of being a leader and guide to the young people of upper Swaledale and Arkengarthdale.

Light refreshments will be served.

Lead volunteer Nick Caldwell says he hopes people call in to find out about being a leader or helper.

Free uniform is provided and full training provided by Richmondshire District and North Yorkshire Scouts.
