23rd Annual International Workshop @ United Reformed Church
Nov 10 @ 10:30 – 15:00

This workshop is Hampshire’s annual networking event to share ideas and activities relating to exploration, global awareness and global concerns.

In the morning Groups that have travelled far and wide in Europe and elsewhere will report on their adventures and will provide ideas which leaders will find

helpful in planning your own trip or contacts abroad.

After a buffet lunch,we will evolve ideas for programmes relating to the global programme zone.

Not only does this provide topics for interesting programmes but also helps Scouts of all ages to relate to the world around them and how this could change during their lifetime.

Undertaking some of these activities will enable Scouts to earn their global issues activity badge and Scouts against malaria badge. The cost of £10 includes refreshments, lunch and handout.

The URC church is in the centre of Basingstoke only a few minutes walk from the rail and bus stations.

Suitable for Scouts and Guides.

 

For Leaders, this will help you achieve accreditation for module 19.
