MP visits Bearsden youngsters

MP Jo Swinson visited youngsters from the 24th Bearsden Beavers group recently to chat to them about life as a politician.

The boys and their Beaver Scout leader Christine Michie invited the representative for East Dunbartonshire to their own version of Question Time.

After answering their questions and chatting to the boys, Ms Swinson watched their activities before presenting certificates for achievements - which included nine boys who are leaving to join the Cubs.

Ms Swinson said: “I was delighted to have been invited to join the Beaver Scouts on and tell them a bit about life as an MP.

“The Scouts organisation is so valuable to young people in our community. It’s a great opportunity to make friends and learn useful skills.”
