Greetings Dear Readers.

Today we have a Interview with a Scout called Tom.

1.  What is a Scout?
A Scout is someone who lives life to the max, enjoying the outdoors, trying new things and meeting new people from all over the world.

2.  What do the Scouts do?
Everything! Glacier walking, Rock climbing, kayaking, zorbing - almost anything you can think of.

3.  We hear that the Scouts have a App, what is that all about?
We like to keep up with the times so we have an App! It's a great game, showcasing a scouting adventure. On top of that you can try your hand at Hangliding, Kayaking and Mountain Boarding.

4.  Are the Scouts a worldwide movement?
There are over 30 million Scouts in almost every single country in the world. We have big world events called Jamborees, where tens of thousands of us get together and have one big party.

5.  What has being a Scout taught you?
Being a Scout has taught me how to live. I have gained lots of self confidence, social and life skills that have set me in a good stead for the future.

6.  Do you recommend youngsters become Scouts?
Joining the Scouts would be the best decision someone will ever make.

7.  Why should people download the Scouts App?
The Scouts App is well made, addictive and great fun! Everything an app should be.

8.  What advice do you have for young people?
Live life to its maximum. Take every opportunity that comes up and don't look back.

9.  What do you do to relax?
I love watching live sport, you will normally find me at The Amex watching Brighton & Hove Albion, or The Stoop cheering on Harlequins.

10.  What is your favourite quote?
'Yes we can!' Barack Obama

Next up we have some Poetry from a Durban Writer Timothy Sparks

The Sea of Tranquility

The still pencil-drawn lake of the sea,
Follows a line around Venus
In the hours, one moons' solitary
Angle in perfect alignment its genus

The beauty that waxes her eyes
A flame naked, but resolved:
The single, matchless candle of time lies
Caressed, swept up and dissolved.
