The weather was amazing as were the 33 Scouts who took part. Leaving the Scout HQ at 8:30pm they walked a 17km loop back to the HQ where they slept for the rest of the night, rising from 6am to the smell of the camp favourite, Easton Mess! Great work Scouts!

On the first day of Half Term the Cubs and Scouts held a trip to Monkey World. The Cubs have been working towards their Animal Carer activity badge and used the day to find out about the habitats of the monkeys and apes and the threats they face in the wild. The keepers gave us an informative talk, we took time watching the monkeys and then we let our Cub and Scout monkeys loose on the giant play equipment before coming home.
