As you are aware we are taking a party to Sweden at the same time as the WSJ for some of those in GLSW who were not selected to go to the USA.
This has resulted in 43 young people, all of whom will be aged 14 years and not yet 18 years as at 24/7/19.
Our original target was 50 participants, and we almost made it reaching 46. Since that time 3 young people have dropped out.
The Leadership Team has now decided to make a further 7 places available to Scouts/Explorer Scouts who meet the age qualification above on a first come first served basis when the list opens on Eventbrite on September 16.
This gives 7 days for the information to be cascaded to Scout Troops and Explorer Units.
Our destination will be near Malmo in Skane, Southern Sweden, and the total cost will be GBP 600.
We shall require a deposit of GBP 150 in order to book the return flights for the whole contingent, and we plan to do this before the end of September in order to secure the most advantageous prices.
Please circulate this information immediately.
An Eventbrite link will be notified shortly.
