Our Minibus is owned and operated solely by the 10th Royal Eltham Scout Group (Shooters Hill)


As a driver, you are responsible for the safety of the minibus and the passengers at all times.


1, Seatbelts are fitted and must be worn at all times.


2, You are also responsible for the loading of the minibus: exits and all corridors must be kept clear and accessible, and doors unlocked whilst driving.


3, Please check tyre all pressures and all engine fluids weekly.


4, If towing one of our trailers, you are responsible for attaching the Minibus to the tow bar and to the electrical socket and breakaway cable.


5, When returning the bus to our parking facility, all drivers must re-fill with diesel to full, clean the interior, and report any damage, faults, mileage and journey details into the log book placed in the dashboard.


Bookings can be made by any of our sections via our online minibus booking spread sheet.
