Hovertravel welcomes Warwick Davies and IOW Scouts
Warwick was invited to the Isle of Wight by Lady Grylls and visited Hovertravel’s Ryde terminal to meet with the scouts, and to go on board a hovercraft to learn how they work. He also met Imogen Baden Powell, great niece of Robert Baden Powell who founded the Scouting movement over 100 years ago.
Following an introductory chat with the scouts in the terminal, Warwick posed for photographs in front of a hovercraft with the scouts and guests and presented a bravery award to scout Dylan Reeves.Warwick and the scouts then had a talk from pilot Jock, toured the hovercraft on the pad and were able to look inside the engines, and sit in the cockpit.
Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, added: “This special Scouts visit marks the start of our relationship with the Scouts Association. Today (Saturday) we are launching our discounted travel for all Scouts, Beavers and Cub groups and offering their volunteers a discount too. We are also proud to be able to say that this visit helps the Scouts gain their Air Activities – Flight Badge.”
