Scouts from the 3rd Ards Scout Unit, Newtownards recently received their ‘Consumer Scout’ badge.

The ‘Consumer Scout’ badge has been developed by The Consumer Council and Scouts NI, to help raise young people’s awareness of their consumer rights when they shop online or on the high street. The ‘Consumer Scout’ is currently being rolled to 150 Scout groups across Northern Ireland, reaching approximately 2,400 young consumers aged between 10 ½ – 14.  For more information on being a member of Scouts NI or finding your nearest unit, contact 028 9049 2829 or visit www.scoutsni.org.
