Llanishen & Lisvane Scout Group were approached, via Facebook by four German Scout Leaders, who were traveling between Ireland and Germany and wished to stay overnight in our Scout Hall. They arrived on a Thursday night, during the September and helped out with the Scout programme for the evening. That is when we found out that one of them, Joschka, is the Chief Commissioner of the largest Scouting organisation in Germany! We are not worthy! They were a great group of Leaders.
