A POPULAR Cirencester beavers group for children is desperately hunting for a new leader.

The Beavers, part of the Deer Park Kemble Scout Group, sees 18 children between the ages of six and eight turn up each week to enjoy nature watching, crafts, athletics and more.

The colony asked for a new leader to step forward at the start of the year, and volunteers too, but so far the team has not been lucky enough to recruit anyone.

The role would suit anyone who is a team player. Applicants do not need to be a parent or have any previous experience as clearance and training are all provided. Contact DPKbeavers@gmail.com to apply or for more details. The Deer Park Kemble Cubs and Scouts are also looking for volunteers for their groups.
