At our meeting on 28th March, Carnforth Rotary hosted Explorer Scout Manager, Bryan Caine who is also an Honorary member of Ulverston Rotary Club. Bryan spoke about how he had set up an Interact group within the Explorer Scouts unit. He explained that it had taken 12 months to research the details of Interact clubs and dovetail them into Explorer Scouts. Bryan’s believes that linking the Explorer group with Rotary Interact will encourage opportunities for the Scouts to get involved with Community and International Projects. Ulverston Rotary have 2 liaison officers who meet regularly with Interact at the Explorer meetings and the group meets annually with Ulverston Rotary.
The meeting was also attended by Dave Squirrel (Lonsdale Explorer Manager), Becky Townson (1st Carnforth Scout Leader), who are very keen to look into starting an Interact group.
