Caroline Nokes joined Romsey Scouts at the Romsey Show on Saturday to officially launch her role as an ambassador for Romsey Scouting. Caroline has taken on the challenge of the Scout assault course in previous years at Romsey Show but this year chose to have a go at virtual canoeing.
Caroline has always been a supporter of Scouting and often attends events, activities and meetings to meet and encourage the young people and support their leaders. As an ambassador, Caroline will speak up for the organisation and promote the fun, adventure and challenge that Scouting offers.
District Commissioner, John Papworth, said “We are delighted that Caroline has agreed to formalise her support of Romsey Scouting. Our young people benefit from meeting and engaging with their local MP and our adult volunteers really appreciate her support. The number of young people joining Scouting is growing across the UK and it is no different here in Romsey. With the increasing demand from young people to experience the adventure of Scouting, there is a real need for more and more adult volunteers. We’re delighted that Caroline will help continue to raise the profile of Romsey Scouting and encourage young people and adults to get involved and join the fun”.
Caroline said “I very much support the Scouting movement and I am delighted to be asked by them to be an ambassador. The Scouting movement has a huge amount to offer young people and adults. I would encourage them to get involved and experience this for themselves”.
