Bob-a-job week is here again
   Next week Scouts in the Wigan area - and all over the country - will be offering their services to householders and institutions under the Bob-a-Job scheme.
   Scouts do not tout for money - they never rattle collection boxes or run flag days. One of the principles of the Movement is that boys are trained to earn money they need for their Scouting. Bob-a-Job is one of the ways they do it.
   They will come to doors and ask for a job to do, but will they please remember the following:
  • Make sure the boys really are Scouts.
  • Choose a job suited to the age and capacity of the boys.
  • See that they do it properly.
  • Pay them what the job was worth.
  • Enter the amount on their job card.

  • The Scouts will like it if they are treated seriously and given real work for a real reward.
