Two Stoughton Explorers (Miki and Jordan) have been selected to represent Guildford West as part of the Surrey contingent for the Scout World Jamboree in Japan in 2015.

On being selected Jordan say "..I had been selected and had one of the places to go to Japan to represent Guildford West. One of my reactions was relief and then it hit me. I started jumping up and down with excitement. I have felt very proud of my achievements and have shared this with my friends and family"

Miki added "I am so grateful to be selected as I believe it will give me an insight into other cultures. Although a great deal of fundraising has to be done both Jordan and I are looking forward to every aspect of the Jamboree. The selection weekend was a great opportunity to test out a wide variety of skills. I do feel that as I love exploring, meeting new people and learning about cultures greatly different to our own, the chance to go to the Jamboree is a great opportunity."
