North Wales Weekly News - - WRITTEN BY YOU -

CL­WYD West AM Dar­ren Mil­lar re­turned to a Col­wyn Bay Scout troop re­cently to present mem­bers with badges which he helped them achieve.

In July, Dar­ren vis­ited 6th Col­wyn Bay Scouts to talk about his role as an Assem­bly Mem­ber and to an­swer ques­tions from the group as part of their Democ­racy Chal­lenge Badge.

Re­cently, re­turned to present the young­sters with their badges.

He said: “I am de­lighted that Scouts Wales are of­fer­ing young peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to learn about pol­i­tics and democ­racy and that I was able to as­sist the troop in Col­wyn Bay in gain­ing their Democ­racy Chal­lenge badge.

“I had a great time when I vis­ited them in July and was very im­pressed by their keen in­ter­est in pol­i­tics and I had another en­joy­able evening when I re­turned to present them with their badges. “This is a fan­tas­tic troop which I would rec­om­mend to any young­sters in the area who have a sense of ad­ven­ture.

“Any­one in­ter­ested in join­ing the Scouts should go along on a Tues­day night to the Bryn Cadno Com­mu­nity Cen­tre in Col­wyn Heights at 7.30pm. The troop wel­comes boys and girls and has a good mix of ages.”
