SNAPPY scouts received some expert advice from a professional photographer as part of their latest task.

Members of the 1st Charmouth Scout group, pictured right, were completing their badge in photography and were visited by local photographer Anna Kindred.

After receiving the advice from Ms Kindred, they then scoured the village and places further afield to try and get the most interesting shots to fill their portfolio.

Carol Moorey, assistant scout leader, who organised the training and display, said: “We are very grateful to Anna for coming along and passing on her experience.

As part of the challenge the scouts unveiled their portfolios to the scouts district and deputy district commissioners and were then awarded the badge.

The district commissioner also presented Harry Aldworth with his Chief Scouts Gold Award.
