News - Mary Castlebury

We are very sorry to announce that former Scouter Mary Castlebury passed away peacefully on Friday 8th January 2016. Mary was a Scouter within Bromsgrove for many years, in addition to this she also held the roles of Assistant County Commissioner for Cub Scouts and Leader Trainer too.
Scouting was dear to Mary's heart and as such her family have asked that we notify members of the movement of her passing. Members are encouraged to wear uniform to Mary's funeral that will take place at Redditch Crematorium on Tuesday 26th January at 11:45 with donations to the British Lung Foundation.


All of Scouting is reliant on volunteers, from 6 year old Beaver Scouts to 25 year old Scout Network members, all our sections need leaders. These leaders also need support, from assistants, helpers and managers.

Volunteering in Scouting is designed to be flexible. If you can only make every third Tuesday that's fine, because this could mean that every third Tuesday the Cubs can do an outdoor evening because they have an extra adult helping out.
If you don't really like children, that's fine too, we have management roles supporting our adult leaders too.
And if you have a passion for cooking, the outdoors, hockey, nursing, tree surgery, photography or any other hobby or skill and would like your local Scout Group to benefit from this, they would love to hear from you. No matter how little time you can offer, please get in touch and e-mail flexible@bromsgrovescouts.org.uk


Scouting is open to boys and girls from the age of Six to 25. All of our Scout groups have waiting lists of varying lengths, we are actively trying to open more Beaver Colonies, Cub packs, Scout Troops and Explorer Units to satisfy demand and with your help as a volunteer we can do this, so if your son or daughter wishes to join, please consider helping us yourself so that they can join sooner. Please visit www.scouts.org.uk/join after your son or daughters Fourth birthday to add them to our waiting list.
