Yardley MP Jess Phillips visited the 289th Scouts to speak to local Beavers and Explorers.
Jess attended a meeting to meet with local Beavers, aged 6-8, and local Explorers, aged 14-18, to discuss politics, Parliament and being a local MP.
The discussion enabled some of the Explorers to make progress on attaining new badges.
Jess Phillips MP said:
"It was great to meet the Beavers, although briefly, and the Explorers. I think it's fantastic when young people get involved with groups that enable them to meet new people and learn new skills."
"You don't need to be in the Scouts to join the Explorers, and I'd definitely encourage more young people to get involved!"
