BEAVERS could be left high and dry if volunteer leaders cannot be found.
More than 20 youngsters have been attending a Beaver group at Lepton Scout Hut for four years.
But many of them are ready to move up to Cubs – but there is no pack for them to join.
Beaver leaders would like to launch their own Cub and Scout groups in Lepton but need help.
Committee member, Julie Bowden-Flooks, said: “There’s a big waiting list so we can’t get them into Kirkburton.’’
Mrs Bowden-Flooks said they were also looking for help to upgrade the Highgate Lane Scout hut.
She added: “Any local companies that have paint, plasterboard or tiles they can donate to us would be great. We had a toilet donated by Waddingtons Bathrooms but now we need a plumber.”
