WARWICKSHIRE Scouts need to enlist the help of 50 volunteers to enable more young people to join the orgainsation.
Currently there is a waiting list of 500 people – with 190 of those from Leamington and Warwick.
And to help raise awareness more than 1,000 scouts took over the Wasps Nest Fan Village at the Ricoh Arena before a recent match. They offered families the chance to try their hands at soft archery, indoor caving and a 70ft obstacle course.
Warwickshire Scouts deputy commissioner Wendy Williams said: “The scouts are experiencing a surge in popularity which is fuelled by celebrity endorsement.
“We are desperately seeking adult volunteers who can give up some of their spare time to help make a difference to young people in the region.
