Organisers have expressed their disappointment at the turn-out to a Fyvie Scout Group presentation night.
Leaders had been hoping to boost their membership and arranged the evening to attract volunteers.
However, they managed to recruit only a cub and a beaver.
Cub Scout leader Russell Quinlan said: “It was disappointing, particularly as we had distrbuted hundreds of posters and notices.
“It means that each section will now have to look after its own recruitment.”
