Scouts Parents Handbook – Help and Parent Rotas

All troops rely on parent help and parents are expected to help on a regular basis. We have to have a certain ratio of adults to children so we can carry out the planned activities safely.

Misbourne Troop
The parent rota is organised via a parent led WhatsApp group, to join the group or for any queries please contact the leaders or email misbourne.rota@chorleywoodscouts.org.

Chess Troop
We ask that parents come along as a helper to usually 2 Scout events per term. Therefore, we will allocate parents to a particular date if we don’t hear from you in response to a parent rota once sent out. If you are unable to attend your allocated evening/day then it is your responsibility to arrange a swap for another date. We won’t share your email address (to facilitate swaps/lifts etc) unless you give permission. Normally we send emails from our online portal so that you do not see other parents’ email addresses.

Thames Troop
We run a parent rota, and all parents are needed to help out at least once per term. Therefore, we will allocate parents to a particular date if we don’t hear from you in response to a parent rota once sent out. If you are unable to attend your allocated evening/day then it is your responsibility to arrange a swap for another date. We won’t share your email address (to facilitate swaps/lifts etc) unless you give permission. Normally we send emails from our online portal so that you do not see other parents’ email addresses, though we are investigating opt-in methods to make the parent rota simpler. Our rota is managed by Jane – contactable via thames.rota@chorleywoodscouts.org.
