Jo with the 24th Bearsden Cubs
Calling in on the Cub section, aged between 8 and 10 years old, Jo spoke to the boys about the demands of her role as East Dunbartonshire’s MP and answered questions on a wide range of issues.
The fun and games then began with a ‘politician coconut shy’, where the youngsters competed to knock down all the Scottish and English party leaders’ faces.
Commenting, Jo said:
“It was a pleasure to meet the Bearsden Cubs and answer their questions – they certainly gave me a lively grilling on everything from life as a politician to the future for climate-friendly electric cars! The local Cub group is a great way of getting youngsters to socialise and learn new skills, and the boys certainly seemed to be using up a lot of energy enjoying the activities and games.”
