A Narberth Scout has been given a 'golden ticket' to represent Wales at an international jamboree event to be held in Japan.

Recently Ceira Wood, a 12-year-old Scout from 1st Narberth, underwent a rigorous selection process of over 200 Scouts from all over Wales at Brecon, to have a chance at a place in the 23rd World Scout Jamboree 2015 in Japan.

Ceira is the youngest of just six Scouts and 30 Explorer Scouts selected for the north Wales contingent.

She was very proud and thrilled to be chosen for this high profile scouting event, to represent Narberth and her country, and was presented with a Willy Wonka style chocolate bar, complete with golden ticket, in front of her headmaster at Ysgol Dyffryn Taf, inside which was a golden ticket inviting her on the trip of a lifetime to the other side of the world.

The school's head, Mr. Newsome, has since sent her a personal letter of congratulations.

Ceira, who is the daughter of Mark and Wendy Wood, of Narberth, granddaughter of Mrs. Thelma Waugh, of Tenby, and Mr. and Mrs. Barry and Brenda Wood, of Saundersfoot, is a former pupil of Narberth CP and is now in Year 8 at Whitland.

"The Scouting movement is thriving in Narberth and there is soon to be an Explorer group for 14 to 18-year-olds. Come and join, who knows what you will achieve," said Ceira's mum Wendy.

Ceira would very much like to thank Andrea Evans for her help getting to Brecon and to all her leaders from Cubs through to Scouts, especially Merlin, all of whom have given her the support, belief and confidence that she could make this fantastic achievement.
