A World Scout Jamboree. A place of respect, friendship, team work, beliefs, different cultures and most of all – peace. Together we can all aim for World Peace!
This photo was taken during the Paralympic Games in September 2012. We were in London for Gilwell Reunion 2012, at Gilwell Park, Chingford, and we decided to have a tour around the key landmarks. This happened to include a cycle ride on a Boris Bike!
I ended up getting wet feet to get this photo, thanks to the snow for covering up the drainage ditch at the side of the road! This photo was taken in December 2011.
This photo was taken in 2010 in Kandersteg, Switzerland during our ‘trip of a lifetime’, to Kandersteg International Scout Centre. It’s another of my favourite photos from the trip, this took a couple of attempts to get focused correctly, but I think it’s just about there!

During the 22nd World Scout Jamboree, in Rinkaby, Sweden, the theme was ‘Simply Scouting’. All contingents were encouraged to build gateways and structures on their little campsite in a field of 40,000 Scouts! This is one of my favourite photos showing the building of these gateways!
One of my photos from 2010 when 4th Golcar Scout Group visited Kandersteg International Scout Centre in Switzerland. Even though I know there has been no editing on this photo, it still doesn’t look real! What do you think?
Quite a bit of camera shake on this one due to the high winds, but its slightly better than my last attempt. I’ll try again at some point!
