Kent Choices Live
Kent Choices Live came to the Detling showground for two days - a jobs and careers fayre packed full of opportunities for young people, job seekers and those looking for their next step in education or employment.
Kent Scouts once again exhibited and the team of Beccy, Bunty, Ken, Ian, Della, Linda and Claire spoke with hundreds of people about Scouting and the fantastic opportunities there are to get involved. Students pitted their wits against a pop up tent - and tried to get it in the bag. Della was our expert and often had to come to their aid! Some tried stuffing a sleeping bag into its bag - again it defeated many. Even Kelvin who popped along to the stand had a go and his time was 28 seconds - not bad!
On the second day we were joined by Sarah and George from Scout Activity Centres promoting volunteering opportunities at the many centres around the UK. As it was a jobs fair we took the chance to promote the finance and climbing vacancies that we have at Kent Scouts on the jobs board. Our giant advert for Kent Scouts popped up every so often on the giant screen too.
Ken even got the chance to have a massage on the NWKC stand directly opposite us!
Thanks to everyone who visited the stand and special thanks to the team who stood for two days chatting with people about their favourite topic "Scouting".
