We hope you can join us – if you are considering applying for a Nights Away Permit although this event will not provide you with sufficient evidence, it will provide practical guidance and there will be the opportunity to ask questions, lots of them.

Please email diane.parkinson@blackpoolscouts.org.uk if you are planning on joining – we know it is a drop in event, just to understand the interest. A packed lunch will be required – refreshments will be available throughout the day.
