Scouts triumphant

BOYS from the 74th Kingswood Scout group emerged tired but victorious after a two-day hiking expedition.

The four lads walked from Bradford on Avon back to Bristol, camping overnight near Bath on the way. They started off by catching a train to Bradford on Avon from Temple Meads independently and then used their map-work skills to find their way back home to Staple Hill.

The expedition was the last challenge they needed to complete in order to achieve their Chief Scout gold award.

The group, which also has Beaver and Cub sections, meets at the Methodist Church in Staple Hill on Friday evenings and urgently needs adult volunteers to join the leaders in running the sessions.

Group Scout leader Katie Cox said: "Being part of our group is fun, very rewarding and helps our young people gain skills for life."
