Interested in volunteering some time to help Scouting at 1st Woodcutts?

The 1st Woodcutts Active Support Unit (ASU) is a full Section in its own right within the Group. It is a way for adults to support the work of the group and its leaders without needing to take on the full responsibilities and training required to qualify as a Leader.


In 2015, the ASU took the lead in setting up and running the Group's new Air-Rifle shooting range, providing the opportunity for our young people and for visiting groups to learn to handle and shoot air-rifles with qualified and experienced instructors.

No prior experience in Scouting is required to join the ASU, just a willingness to give up some time (and to have some fun too).
