SCOUTS from 1st Blackwater Valley B-P Scout Group enjoyed the warm weather during the Indian summer early in October by camping out deep in the woods on one of the local military training areas.

Five Scouts and three Senior Scouts constructed bivouacs and slept out in the wooded hills over the weekend. Although it rained over the Saturday night all remained perfectly dry testifying to some excellent bivouac construction.

Food was vegetables and fish that they had to prepare themselves, then cook with minimal utensils.

The group welcomes new members both girls and boys between the ages of five and 15-years-old. If you are interested in joining us please contact Margaret on 01252 836014 for further details.
