Island events…

It’s important to keep a high profile for Island Scouting, and so we get involved with many local events, running PR/recruting tents and fun activities.

Here’s a list of some of the major events on each year. Information is taken from various sources so we can’t guarantee the accuracy of any information (check the event websites). Alongside each event is the name of the person who organises our Scout PR team at that event. Contact them directly if you’d like to get involved. If there’s no name alongside an event how would you like to run a team there?

A good source of events is the Isle of Wight Council www.iwight.com
