Have your say

Adventurer Bear Grylls will be dropping in – literally – on a Scouts’ activity day at Peel beach on Saturday.

The UK’s Chief Scout will arrive by helicopter at around 2.30pm to visit the event and see what scouting in the Isle of Man is all about.

The event will be running from 1pm to 3.30pm and will include sand castle building, coasteerng, kayaking and raft building.

It will be only be a flying visit for Bear, however, as he will soon be off to the next stop on his tour of the North West Scouting region.

Now a household name for his books and television series, Bear found fame in the late 1990s when he conquered Mount Everest at the age of 23 – just 18 months after breaking three vertabrae in a parachuting accident.
