Celebrations for 110 years of Hampshire Scouts.
Celebrations for 110 years of Hampshire Scouts kicked off in style with a successful event at the Emirates Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth. Special guests including Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for Hampshire (and President of Hampshire Scouts), Nigel Atkinson Esq, Hampshire’s High Sheriff, Mark Thistlethwayte, the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth and other Civic Heads, joined young people at the Emirate's Spinnaker Tower to celebrate 110 years of adventure. Guests were able to talk to Hampshire’s young Scouts and their leaders and gain a real insight into what Hampshire Scouting achieves in preparing young people with skills for life. The event didn't just attract young people from across the Portsmouth District, but Hampshire Scouts overall, including groups from Romsey, Basingstoke and Hayling Island. This event was organised by young members of the County Team, confirming our intention to ‘Prepare young people with the skills for life’.
