Waiting List

To place your child on the waiting list, please see below.

Given the high demand for places, it is advisable to register your child's details as soon as possible.

If your child is under six years of age, please email : waitinglist@1stharpendenscouts.org.uk giving your name, address and telephone number, together with your child's name and date of birth. The waiting list coordinator will get back to you, confirming receipt.

If your child is older than six years, please complete the form on this web page.  The District Commissioner will place your child's name on the Centralised District Waiting list and offer you a place as one becomes available. You are welcome to express a Group preference if you wish.

As a voluntary organisation, we are always looking for parental volunteers to join us as Beaver, Cub or Scout leaders or as helpers for administration, finance, equipment and property. If you are interested, or feel able to offer any other assistance, we would love to hear from you. Please email: gsl@1stharpendenscouts.org.uk for more information.
