Scouts Clear Area for Backwoods Skills

Date: 15th Nov 2020 Author: Nikki Benge

Just before Lockdown2 – a group of Scouts spent the weekend clearing an overgrown area to the rear of the HQ.

The purpose – to create a designated space for Backwoods skills training.

We can now all look forward to activities such as fire building and lighting, shelter building, knife skills, backwoods cooking and much much more!

Check out the Gallery to see how the first training session went.

Thanks to Clive and Steve for making this happen.

I want the public to know how Scouting continues to open young people’s eyes to a world of extraordinary promise and possibilities.'
