Youth Advisory Group Meeting, Sunday 14 October 2012

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.

Icebreaker games, led by Isobel

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.
