The Royal Three Counties Show

Once again this year we ran the Royal Three Counties Show occasional badge in conjunction with the Three Counties Agricultural Society. The Royal Three Counties Show ran from the 16-18th June 2017 at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern. This year the opportunity to take part was open to all sections in Scouting, as well as being open to the Girl Guiding community for the first time. Participation in the free badge included pre-booked free admission to the show, with a discounted ticket available to parents/guardians.

We had 670 young people and their Leaders attend this year (almost twice the number in 2016), with over 150 of the Guiding community also taking up the opportunity! Consequently there were lots of Scout uniforms visible on the Saturday and Sunday at the show.

All the feedback has been very positive, with the young people typically seeing (and sometimes participating in) aspects of the life of the countryside that they did not normally see - whilst also having a great time.

Our thanks go to the Royal Three Counties Show for making this great opportunity available to our members.
