A waiting list has opened for youngsters interested in joining a new Scout group which is set to launch in Buckley.

A spokesperson for Buckley St Matthew’s Beavers and Cubs said:
“It is with absolute joy and pride that Buckley St Matthew’s Beavers and Cubs are in the process of opening a Scout Troop.
The success of the group of the previous 9 months has been growth has been rapid and wonderful.
We are anticipating an April start so have put out an online waiting list for people to apply.
As with everything, this can only happen with the support of adult volunteers and without them, no section exists so we will be looking for adults to come forward too.
