In 2007, as part of the Centenary of Scouting, we plan to hold a reunion of all those people who attended the last World Jamboree hosted by the United Kingdom, which was held in Sutton Coldfield in 1957. We know that 31,000 people took part in the event and that there were many scout visitors. It is relatively easy to contact those people who are still connected with scouting, but not so easy to contact the others, so would be pleased if you could publish this letter.
We plan a rolling three-day tour of 200 people at a time, during the Hylands Park World Jamboree, and based in Cambridge, that will visit Gilwell Park, the spiritual home of Scouting, the 2007 World Jamboree at Hylands Park, in Essex and Sutton Coldfield the original site of the 1957 World Jamboree.
If any of your readers attended the Jamboree at Sutton Coldfield and would like to attend the reunion more details can be obtained from me:
