It is a condition of membership that the Cub / Scout / Venturer and their family will assist the group with working bees and fundraising including Bunnings BBQ’s and our most significant annual fundraiser, the Christmas Tree sales.

Your participation is essential to the good management of the 1st Northbridge Scout Group.
