29th July 2013
Elaine and a team from Malling District are running the “Empower” sub-camp at the Kent International Jamboree (KIJ) at Detling this week over for 1,000 scouts and leaders from all around the world.
Tim Brown, John Green and Linda Thomas built this entrance gate to the Empower site last week ready to welcome their visitors who include scouts from Kenya and Malta amongst others from other countries and the U.K.
The total number of Scouts & Guides from Britain and overseas who are camping this week is around 6,000.
Members of the District team, Malling Scouts Active Support Team and leaders from Malling are also running a soft drinks concession with the aim of raising funds for the District campsite.
