Solihull Selects Jamboree Leaders

We are very pleased to announce that Solihull Scout County has chosen George Wilkinson and Simon Johnson to lead eighteen Explorer Scouts to the next World Scout Jamboree. They will be joining with two leaders and eighteen young people from Coventry to make up the Jamboree unit. The Jamboree itself will take place in America, Canada & Mexico in July 2019 but the journey starts today.

The Jamboree is a fantastic opportunity for young people and will involve two years of fundraising and training before the trip itself. We plan to start the selection of participants in the next couple of weeks with a view to getting the unit in place before the Summer break. Please keep an eye on your emails, social media and for details about the information evening and selection information and spread the word, to help us reach every eligible young person in the county.

I’m sure you will join us in congratulating George and Simon and wish them every success in what will be a once in a lifetime adventure for all involved. With such a big task ahead I’m sure they will be grateful for any help and support you can give. They can be contacted via email:
