|Meeting in the Queen’s House with Amy Miller|
Youth Advisors, Henry and Clemmie, share what we got up to in our last meeting:
We fit a lot into this session. We played some fairly successful icebreaker games, did some admin, discussed the qualities we look for in a volunteer and had a tour of the Queen’s House.

The tour was really enjoyable. The tour guide described the history of the House. It was especially interesting to learn that it was once a place where boys learnt to be sailors and there was a ship outside where they’d stay for weeks at a time.
