As you are now fully aware, we had to initially postpone the NL18 Mile Hike on Saturday 2nd February 2019 due to harsh weather conditions, which included ice and snow with an Amber Weather Warning.

1st North Leigh Endeavour Scout Troop cook Pigeon in the woodland We like to challenge our Scouts and push their boundaries and senses to new levels.

Don’t ask how we got to doing a Hip-Hop Dance Off at scouts this week to RUN DMC’s ‘it’s like that’ but we did. We had great fun with two crews breaking some moves against each other!. This is our Scout Leader Joff thinking that he looks cool………!
