Manchester Disaster

Our thoughts are with all those affected by the Manchester Arena explosion.
We are saddened that terror has affected so many young people.
If any of our members are affected, upset, worried or unable to sleep that they should talk to their leader, teacher, GP. We also advise leaders that it is appropriate to fly the flag at half mast this week and that they should be prepared to discuss events with young people who will show an interest and need our support.
