Harpenden’s new Explorer Scout Unit KES (Kinsbourne Explorer Scouts) opened its doors to nearly 40 potential new members at its Welcome Day and barbeque last weekend.  The weather was fantastic allowing everyone to sit outside enjoying the beautiful surroundings of Kinsbourne Common.  Unit leader Nigel Marriott said ‘’we were thrilled with the response we had from the young people and fellow scout leaders who came along to support. The young people really engaged in the activities and games and enjoyed the socialising afterwards. They seem like a great group that will be very exciting to work with. It was a fantastic session which we really enjoyed running ’’. 

The Unit will open on September 10th on a Friday night between 8-10pm.  ‘’Together with Liz and David, my co leaders, we have planned what we hope is an exciting programme of events such as team-building games, social outings, camps, outdoor activities and charity events. Our young people will play an active role in the management of the group, encouragement will be given to develop their leadership and life skills such as working as a team ’’.
