A scout group in a Suffolk town is appealing for volunteer leaders to help run the thriving group.

The 1st Eye scout group has grown considerably over the past few years, and is now in need of volunteer leaders to be able to continue.

There are now 96 boys and girls in the four sections, the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers and in April some more of the older Scouts will be moving up to the Explorer Scout Section.

Joan Norman is the groups scout leader said; 'It's great that we are expanding and the young people are wanting to stay with us until they are 18.'

The population of young people in Eye has grown, so we now need the adults to become part of the troop too.'

Since September the groups have been enjoying the new £130,000 headquarters on Wellington Road.

The new volunteer leaders will be fully trained and will be helping the small Explorer Scout section for young people aged 14 to 18, running all the adventurous activities. For details email joan.norman1@sky.com
