Local MP at the Essex International Scout Jamboree


Local MP, Douglas Carswell, attended the Essex International Scout Jamboree held just outside Kirby-le-Soken.

Over 10,000 Scouts from 32 different countries descended on Devereux Farm near Kirby, for a week of fun and games.

Douglas says "It was wonderful to meet so many fun and enthusiastic people from all over the world. As a former Scout myself, I was really pleased to catch up with so many scouts".

"Everyone seemed to be having lots of fun - and there were a range of really fun things happening".

"I met up with some local Scouts from Clacton and from Dovercourt. It is such a privilege for us to have hosted this jamboree for scouts from all over".
