About 20 children of the First Westridge scouts attended a camp at the League of Friends of the Blind resort in Strandfontein in July.

Councillor Eddie Andrews helped the scouts with resources to ensure a successful camp.

The project was identified as one of the ward 78 projects for the current financial year.

During the weekend the children received lessons on life skills such as critical thinking, teamwork and building self-esteem.

In his address Andrews highlighted the valuable work the scout movement did, in particular affording youth at risk with necessary life skills.

He further thanked Irma Cotton, the scout leader, for the important role she played as the group leader, ensuring the programme was accessible to all and effectively managed.

Andrews encouraged parents to enrol the children in the programme as it provided leadership support for the future. V
