Once again The Peace Light is being brought to the Island. This year the Lieutanant Governor and Tim Kidd (the new Chief Commissioner of the UK (The Scout Association)) will be attending.
Representatives of The Scout Association and Guiding in the Isle of Man will be travelling away and bring the Peace Light back to the Island. We are looking for 1 Scout, 1 Sea Scout, 1 Explorer, 1 Guide and 1 Senior Section.
We will travel out on Monday 12th December and return on Wednesday 14th December.
There is no cost involved, but refundable deposit of £50 is required which is returned on Sunday 18th December IF they attend the bag pack in the big Shoprite in Peel to raise money for the trip.
The young people picked will have the honour of representing the Island and receive an Island scarf, special woggle, hoodie and T-shirt.
They are expected to sell candles in St. Helens, return the Light via the Steam Packet and have several duties at the Service at St. Matthews, Douglas.
The young people must be aged 13+ and will enjoy an evening bowling at a local amusement arcade with local Scouts plus a day in Liverpool before their official duties begin.
The trip is classed as a school visit so no absences are recorded from school.
Please forward nominees to Julie Leece ASAP so the selection process can begin.
