Like many voluntary charitable organisations, Scouting too relies on background support. Unlike the uniformed leaders who often receive feedback from the youngsters for their voluntary contribution, the members of the parents committee provide much needed support without much praise or thanks.
The 113th has always had a very strong parents committee. Its strength is in raising funds to maintain and improve the Scout hall, and to build links with the wider community. The increased usage of the hall over the past couple of years proves the worth of these relationships.
The Committee are now renowned for their annual programme of fundraising social events, including the November ceilidh, the February race night and the May Plant sale
The Committee welcomes assistance and participation from any parents, former members or friends of the Group who feel willing and able to give their time and/or services.
Current elected office bearers are:
Chairperson - Louise Bacon
Treasurer - Jim Mortimer
Secretary - Andy Moffat
