The unit is run by volunteers who plan, organise and run all the activities. At Willand we have a leadership team, rather than one of us being the “Brown Owl” in overall charge. We meet regularly to plan sessions and make sure the programme covers all of the guiding essentials as well as being fun for all of us. If you would like you join our fun and friendly team, please just get in touch, you would be most welcome!
Please remember that we are all volunteers, with our own families and job to consider. Whilst we enjoy running the unit, it may sometimes take a day or two to reply to queries, so please be patient.
