The Scouts will now have to fork out to have the damage to the fence repaired which is estimated to cost between $1,000-$1,500.

Tanilba Bay Scout Leader Ralph Francis told News Of The Area, “These funds would normally have gone towards developing and delivering programs for the local scouts.”

Scouts offer youth an opportunity to embark on One Program One Journey from aged 5 to age 26.

With Joeys graduating through, Cubs to Scouts then Rangers and finally as Venturers.

Along the way the program participants learn valuable life skills while building resilience and leadership.

In today’s Scouts, the youth design and develop programs supported by adults.

Youth take responsibility and can do almost anything through Scouting including learning to fly and piloting planes as Venturers.

Scouting uses social, physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual, skill development to assist youth to grow into well adjusted adults that are engaged with their community.

Scouts also enjoy positive benefits when it comes to employment as employers know that Scouts have learnt valuable skills like problem solving and leadership and being reliable through fun activities.

The Tanilba Bay Scouts are actively seeking leaders and members to become involved in their programs.

They would also appreciate any assistance available with the repairs for the vandalised fence.

Leaders do need to have a police check and hold a current safe working with children check as well as participating in some training however Ralph Francis believes that the rewards of volunteering as a Scout Leader are well worth the time and effort involved.

Anyone interested in getting involved with Scouts should visit www.scouts.com.au and search for their nearest Scouting Group.

  1. It would be a great time to fit a cattle gate, rather than repair with fencing. far less labour and useful for access.
