A NORTH Devon Scout group is on the lookout for new recruits, aged from six to 14.

The 5th North Devon Scout Group has an exciting programme of events planned for the autumn term and currently has vacancies for all three sections, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

The group re-formed in 1972 and covers a catchment area including Newport, Whiddon Valley, Swimbridge and Bishops Tawton. Assistant group Scout leader Norman Rider said the group had a long tradition of offering young people of all ages the chance to experience Scouting in a safe and friendly environment.

"The Aim of 5th North Devon Scout Group is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities," said Mr Rider.
