Reader Peter has been in touch with an important appeal – the Scout group at St. Tomas’s Church in Lazy Hill, between Aldridge and Walsall Wood, needs volunteer leaders.

I know a few old hands here were boy scouts, and this is a great organisation that does so much, not just for the kids, but also the coal community.

Hi Bob

I’m looking for some help and wondered if you could help?

Along with a number of other adults I run a Scout Group at St. Thomas’s Church in LazyHill, Aldridge. As ever we are looking for adult volunteers to help run the various sections. We are losing 2 or 3 leaders at the end of the Summer Term (July) this year and are actively advertising/recruiting for new Leaders. I wondered if you could run the appeal on your blog please Bob, we are advertising elsewhere and appealing of course for parental help, I’ve approached some of the local Schools and Churches also, if anyone thinks they might be interested and find out more or come forward as a potential new leader then could they leave a message on the blog or contact your good self please? There is a checking procedure to go through and of course any involvement would be after these checks had been performed, but that doesn’t stop people volunteering now though!

We meet on a Friday at St. Thomas’s Church and we are looking for a Scout Leader, Scouts meet between 8 and 9.30pm, the role is a relaxed but structured one with benefits for both the lads and adult volunteers, it is of course unpaid but can be fun. The Scout Group at Lazy Hill has been around since the late 1970’s and is thriving, we have 3 sections Beavers 6-8 years, Cubs 8-11 years and Scouts 11 years up, we have around 40 lads in total and a good core Leadership team, please help if you can.

Bob, if you would consider running the appeal We’d be very grateful, I can’t think of a better way of reaching thousands of people so quickly and easily…

Why not give me a call on 07798.634722 to find out more>


Cheers Peter for the kind words. Always a pleasure. If you’d rather email in the first instance, drop me a line on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com and I’ll pass it on.


The Scouts are ace. Please lend a hand if you can!
