Youth Forum for Yeats Scout County

On Sunday, 25th March, Yeats Scouts County (i.e. Scout Groups in Sligo and South Donegal) are holding a Youth Forum for all Scouts in the county.

This is an opportunity for Scouts to have a say in how Scouts are run and what activities they would like to see taking place in the county.  It is also a chance to meet Scouts from other Groups and to make new friends.

We would ask as many Scouts as possible from our Group to take part.
