LIGHTS, CAMERA, ADVENTURE!
On a hot and thundery weekend, three Nottinghamshire scouts, Ben (15), Josh (16) and Emily (14) joined 150 others from across the UK on a two-day intensive media and communications training weekend at Gilwell.
The climatic conditions where perfect training for the scouts who will be facing tropical conditions on the Jamboree site in Kirahama, south-west Japan next summer.
The training included tv, radio, social media and press journalism to help the scouts be prepared for any kind of media opportunity between now and when they return from the life changing Jamboree experience.
Emily (14) said “this weekend has been awesome, I’ve made tonnes of new friends and learnt loads of new things, I can’t wait for the Jamboree!”

Harry, Tom and John are still looking for additional people to join the Public Affairs team as a Public Affairs Ambassador. They are looking to better reflect the demographic profile of Nottinghamshire Scouts and therefore would particularly welcome expressions of interest from girls and any Explorers from the ethnic minorities but they would still like to hear from anyone who might be interested.
