Fallibroome students George Hine, Sam Wood, Ben Kyd and Millie Collins have been selected to represent Macclesfield and Congleton District Scouts at the next World Scout Jamboree 2019 which takes place in North America in Summer 2019. A selection camp took place in October with over 35 Scouts and Explorers competing for the 10 places available. They were interviewed and assessed on a number of different skills during an intense 24hr period. Then followed a nervous few days as the lucky few awaited the arrival of their ‘Golden’ letter in the post.

Now the selection process is complete, the preparation is under way with a number of team building events and camps as part of the wider Cheshire and Merseyside contingent. The in July/August 2019 the participants will spend 12 days at the Jamboree with over 40,000 Scouts and Guides from across the globe from Azerbaijan to Vanuatu, as well as a ‘Big City’ and homestay experience.

The fundraising starts now.
