MP congratulates Scouts on Diamond Jubilee Achievement in Bob-a-Job week

Taking place from 14-20 May 2012 this week will see Scouts across the country volunteer in local area. 1st Little Stoke Scouts are celebrating their 60th anniversary this year and invited local MP Jack Lopresti to help them celebrate.

The well-known "Bob a Job" Week of old was re-launched as Scout Community Week this year after a seventeen year break and scouts in Filton and Bradley Stoke will be taking part. Scout Community Week will see Scouts from across the UK taking part in an array of tasks and projects to make a positive impact on the lives of local people. The Scout Association wants your help in bringing these benefits to our community.

Jack Lopresti MP said:

"Scout Community Week is taking place this week across the UK and I am proud to support it, particularly as scout groups in the Filton and Bradley Stoke area are heavily involved. Organisations such as the Scouts play an important role in our communities and do wonderful work with so many young people. I was lucky enough to visit the Avon Scouts Annual General Meeting last year and saw firsthand the positive impact Scouts have on our local area.

On Tuesday evening I visited the 1st Little Stoke Scouts to help them celebrate their 60th Anniversary, I was lucky enough to be made an honorary scout and i will be upholding the Scouts code! Anyone can get involved in the Scout Community Week and I encourage anyone so minded to have a look on the Scouts website."
