2020 Event Sponsors Are you ready? Registration opening for 1st January 2020! We are back for 2020 and we are going to be bigger and better! Having moved our date for next years event to the 28th March 2020, we are hoping for better weather and to offer more places to Scout Groups and families that weren’t so lucky in getting into the very popular and fantastic ‘Winter Challenge Hike’ on the Ridgeway. We can offer the same distances, we have specific routes for beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and Network.

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. With this in mind, the Leader Team decided that we would show the scouts how to prepare pigeons without using a knife or any other tools in a woodland setting. All of our scouts really embraced this challenge and got stuck in, stripping the pigeon breast from the pigeon and preparing it ready to cook. The favourite of the evening was our chef inspired Rosemary Branch kebabs closely followed by the plain and simple, lightly seasoned pigeons breast by itself. The taste was extremely gamely but we all had a great time and can’t wait to do it all again soon, but it will probably be rabbit next time.
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………!
