Fancy Fencing at First Ferring

Having recently received their Chief Scout Gold award together, it has been even more fabulous to congratulate them both on being selected as 2 of 6 young people who will represent Arundel and Littlehampton District at EuroJam Poland 2020!

Exploring Explorers!

7 Feb 2020

At the age of 14 many keen Scouts drop out of the organisation because they do not know what to do or where to go next.
