Scouts are look­ing for lead­ers

Isis Town and Country - - News Welcome -

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.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion phone Bob Ed­mis­ton on 0422 831 533 or email childer­s­best@ya­hoo.com.
