Scout jamboree opening

The Isle of Man will be well represented at Saturday's official opening of the World Scout Jamboree.

A group of eleven scouts from the Island are among the 40,000 living on-site at Hylands Park in Essex.

Isle of Man Post has been chosen as the Jamboree's official post office for the event.

It has produced a stamp issue celebrating 100 years of scouting, and a special Sunrise Folder to mark its new century will be out on August 1.
