FOUR young scouts were surprised with a visit from one of the most senior members of their movement – who invested them in to the world of Explorer Scouting.

John May, vice-chairman of the World Scout Movement, is based in Geneva, Switzerland, but came to the UK for the 20th anniversary of Network Russia, an event celebrating links between Russian and UK scouts.

The members of the 27th Rotherham scouts were helping out as waiters at an event to raise cash for a trip to Russia next summer.

John picked out the four boys to be invested in to the world of Explorer Scouting. Barry Dale, president of the 27th Rotherham Scout Group, said: “When young people are invested as Explorer Scouts we try to make it a memorable occasion.”
