Scouts across Mersey Weaver mourn the loss of our beloved monarch and Patron, HM The Queen. Her outstanding example of service, encouragement and kindness was an inspiration to us all. We join the rest of the nation in remembering her 70 years of glorious service.

Our Programme Workbank

Here’s some of the Growth & Development projects we have completed, currently working on and that are in the pipeline.


Completed Projects

Recruitment Backpack

Andrew is in the process of putting together a set of useful resources that can be used for both adult and youth recruitment. This will include resources such as banners, signs, leaflets, QR codes, demo activities as well as advice what you should say to different people. Once complete, the suitcase(s) will be available for groups and district team members for community events, AGM’s, school visits etc to aid with adult and youth recruitment.


Projects in progress

12th Widnes

Andrew will be working with 12th Widnes to recruit a new Group Scout Leader, restart the Scout section, bolster the Cub section and support with the recruitment of Trustees. This will involve visits to local schools, running some parent/child taster sessions and engaging with the local community.

Group Scout Leader and 14-25 Team Leader recruitment

Andrew will be working on a district wide project focused on recruiting more line managers to ensure every volunteer leader is properly supported. The objective is to fill all vacancies and start some succession planning for GSLs who plan to step downing the near future.
