Blog #2 Arriving at the Jamboree and the opening ceremony!
Parents, friends and family!
After a very wet start, we packed the (rather wet) tents and kit into the van, and pressed on with the last leg of travelling to the jamboree. We arrived to the jamboree site, and began to set up after getting the van stuck in the field!, despite the constant rain, we had the camp set up efficiently, and the whole group put in a cracking effort.
After the camp had been set up, we visited the opening ceremony, our very own Matt Addison was volunteered to raise the Union Jack flag on behalf of the British groups at the camp. After various interesting acts and songs, including a magician/acrobat/juggler, and various scouts singing.
