He first got involved in Scouting aged eight as a Cub Scout. Bear attributes this time as part of the inspiration behind his adult adventures presenting TV shows such as Born Survivor: ‘So much of who we are as an adult is formed when we are kids,’ said Bear. ‘What Scouting says to people is: “it’s okay to go for it in life”.’
When asked why he chose to volunteer for the UK’s largest mixed youth movement, Bear said: ‘In short, because I love adventure and I love hanging out with good friends. For me this is what Scouting is about.
‘Every child has a right to have an adventure. Life is about grabbing opportunities. The prizes don’t always go to the biggest, the best and the strongest – they go to those who persevere. These are simple life lessons that Scouting teaches people.’
We also have an event hire team that will be able to help you with rental of the hall and it’s facilities.

Scouting is an organisation open for all young people from 6 years old right through into being adults, it allows them to experience new horizons while letting them grow in confidence and expand their life skills. Scouting offers a range of activities with roots firmly set in enjoying outdoor life. Apart from the camping, activities range from rock climbing, canoeing and archery to the new skills of information technology, photography and world/cultural awareness.
It’s also a huge opportunity to allow young people to find and interact with like-minded people from all walks of life, strike up new friendships, enjoy being part of a community and work as a team.
