New to 1st Burford? Below is some useful information about how we work.

Sections – Each section has a Section Leader and an Assistant, plus several other adult volunteers. Our group relies on volunteers and we are always looking to welcome more. If you’d like to consider helping the group please click here. Each section runs its own bespoke programme for the appropriate ages, however we often have cross over and share ideas. 

OSM – We use Online Scout Manager to help with the organisation of the group. It deals with all member data and is also used for programme planning and events such as camps etc. If you are new to the group and need to sign up click here. 

 Executive Committee – Our group Exec Committee help support the function of our Scout Group by dealing with all matters outside of the weekly programme. This ranges from Scout Hut management, to fundraising and finance and keeping our link with the local community of Burford strong. They make sure we are delivering and exciting programme and that all the leaders are happy. If you feel like you can’t commit to helping with weekly meetings but would still like to help, joining our Exec Committee is a great way to do that.
