URGENT appeal: Kempshott Scouts are putting out an urgent appeal for more volunteer leaders. You do not have to attend every week, but if several people want to help they could work together and run a section on a rota basis – this already happens in other areas.

If you are over 18 and could spare a few hours in the week and the odd weekend, please consider helping out.

Full training is given and you need not have been in Scouting before.

Scouting is great for the kids, but it’s also an excellent experience for adults to meet new people, learn new skills and enjoy the adventures Scouting can offer.

If you would like more information or would like to help, please contact the group at Kempshott@basingstokewestscouts.org.uk.

COMMUNITY Police Surgery: The next one will take place on Monday at 7pm at Kempshott Village Hall.

This is your opportunity to raise any issues with a member of the local beat team.
