Scouts visit House of Commons


          John Redwood joined representatives of Wokingham scouts at a reception given in the Speaker’s House. After the speeches he showed them parts of the Palace and told them a little of the history of the great building. A number of MPs turned up to celebrate the achievement of the scouting movement, and to thank the volunteers who run it.

    My son went through cubs, scouts and is now in his final year as an Explorer. He found friendship, fun, skills in abundance(including skinning a rabit!). He has gained so much from the scout movement. Wonderful movement, long may it continue.
