October was a special month for many members in the Group. Older Scouts moved up to the Explorer Section, Older Cubs got invested into the troop and four Chief Scouts awards were presented by Anne Law, our District Commissioner. Well done and best wishes for your future in Scouting! 

Camping Competition 2017

Another great achievement for the troop, coming 3rd in the National Finals of the Camping Competition. Well done to all involved, with a huge amount of effort given in difficult conditions.
