After 3 months of training 2 teams of 4 scouts competed in the Overland this weekend. This entailed 25 miles of hiking and carrying kit, tents and food. They camped overnight after the first 15 miles and did another 10 today. Both teams finished in good time and were placed 9th and 6th out of 24 scout teams. A massive achievement for them all. Ashdown district had all their teams finish in the top ten. A massive well done to Matt, Finn, Duncan and Freya in team A and Angus, Eleanor, Charlotte and Luke in team B.
Welcome to Buxted Scouts
