A SCOUT group which has benefited youngsters for more than 100 years is facing an uncertain future after two of its leaders decided to step down.

Kirkbymoorside Beavers, Cubs and Scouts involves more than 50 local children, who enjoy a wide ranging programme of activities, as well as getting involved in the local community.

However, the Beaver leader Matthew Baildon and Scout leader Jane Thomas are now standing down from their roles at the end of the summer term and the group is urgently in need of new leaders to replace them.

Although they will both still be involved with Kirkbymoorside Scouts and are available to support new leaders in settling in, unless new volunteers come forward the Beaver and Scout sections will have to close.

Jane said: “Over the last seven years as a scout helper and leader, I have learned a great deal and had a huge amount of fun. The young people we work with are always ready for a challenge and their enthusiasm makes the job very rewarding.

“Since starting my new business I am no longer able to provide the weekend and evening activities that allow Scouts to put their skills into practice, they deserve a leader or team of leaders who can support them in the activities which are available through the wider Scouting organisation.

“I am very sorry to be leaving the role, but looking forward to supporting the other leaders in my new role as group scout leader.”
