For the first meeting on 25 May at Eaton Vale, I am looking for some volunteers from Norfolk Scouts to help run the event. We are running some of our own team building activities and also Eaton Vale are kindly running bases for us. We need people to help with check – in, running bases, and accompanying groups around the bases (along with Nelsons Journey new Scouting volunteers)
