    Hubby is SL, eldest is YL (scouts) and Explorer, middlest is an Explorer and littlest is a scout.

    Other leaders in our group are a father and daughter pair running beavers and another couple who are both ACSLs and ASLs who will be getting married in July and met as Explorers. Our remaining leaders are an ACSL whose sister is an Explorer and YL in Cubs, and an ASL Network ex-Explorer who has a brother in Explorers and another in scouts. We only have one leader, an ASL, who has no extended family in scouting.

    Mind you please note the total lack of parents in that list DH and I are the only parents involved at any level. Having said that it gives us young enthusiastic leaders - 5 of them are Network!

    Just me

    Dad hates kids, Mum doesn't understand the concept of doing something to benefit others, my sister will occasionally come along if I'm short a parent on the rota, but she doesn't enjoy it.

    I could do with one of these scouty husbands to be honest!

    Son and I have recently been invested - Beaver & ABSL

    My sister was Akela many moons ago, but is resisting my efforts to get her involved again.

    I've no significant other, but if I did have one, I would probably rope him in

    mrs w is an occasional helper but was previously involved in guiding from 7 through to 17, and periodically helps me out with events.

    mum was a cub leader in Nottingham between about 1971 and 1977, and prior to that involved in Guiding.

    dad helped out and was a cub in Birmingham in the early 1960s.

    brother was involved until he went to university.
