Martin’s Top Tip’s were born in the run up to the World Scout Moot in Iceland in 2017.  Martin began sharing his experiences of the various events he’d been to, in an attempt to help those on their first event, or even to add something to the Moot for those who had been there before.  He shared his thoughts and experiences with the contingent, talking about everything from “friends and relationships” to the inevitable “Moot Blues”

Given the glowing success of that series, ran in the UK Contingent Self Help Group as a series of Facebook posts, he decided, with the rest of the editorial team, to go “professional”.  With the 24th World Scout Jamboree is being held in North America in 2019, Martin recruited a team to share their experiences in the hope that they can enhance other people’s Jamboree.  Shortly afterwards they set up this website and began throwing their self confessed wisdom around the internet.
