Volunteers Required

We are in desperate need of committee members for Little Scamps and volunteers for Beachley Youth Club (BYC).  Helping in either of these roles is extremely rewarding; it shows a true and strong community spirit and looks exceptionally good on your CV! 

Committee members for Little Scamps are required by law, Ofsted and the Charity Commission.  Without a full complement we would have to close the setting.  Your tasks would not take up too much of your time.  You would be required to attend a meeting every quarter, where you would be able to have an active voice in the setting and assist with running periodic fund-raising events.  It is ideally suited to a parent of a child attending Little Scamps.

BYC is not going to be supported by the Army Welfare Service any more, and if we want to continue with the club, every Wednesday, we must find the staff and volunteers.  Catherine (who is a civilian volunteer), a member of my team and two of the regular volunteers currently ensure we can open.  If one of our regulars cannot attend, we cannot open due to safety and ratios.  There is a genuine risk of closure if we do not get support.

There is a small admin charge for the Little Scamps DBS, but we will reimburse you, providing that you remain on the committee for a period of 6 months.  The Youth Club DBS is free of charge.

Please contact the Welfare Office if you are interested in volunteering.

Mothering Sunday Lunch

If you do not fancy cooking a roast or doing the washing up this Mothering Sunday, why don’t you treat yourself to a two-course meal in the HUB.  
A provisional booking has been made with the HUB (camp) for a Sunday roast on 31 March.  
We need to confirm numbers NLT Friday 15 March, therefore, please see Hayley (Welfare Office) and put your name on the list.  It will only cost £1.00 per person!  The money is payable when you hand in your name.
