Scouts are looking for leaders
SCOUTS were spotted at this year’s spectacular Childers Festival as they fired up the barbecue and were kept busy all day sizzling sausages for the hungry crowd.
Leader in charge Bob Edmiston said he looked forward to the festival each year and the Scouts enjoyed being part of it.
“The festival is great for Childers and brings the community together,” he said.
“The festival is a great event for us to promote and encourage more people to sign up as a leader.
“Training is provided through the Scouts Australia Institute of Training, which is accredited to award nationally recognised VET qualifications in leadership and management.
“Normally, leaders need to commit to group meetings one night per week during school term and a monthly leaders’ meeting,” Mr Edmiston said.
