Beavers, Cubs and Scouts survived sub-zero temperatures to complete the 25th NESST Challenge Walk. Brave Beavers completed a 1.5 mile course on site at Walesby Forest Scout Activity Centre. Courageous Cubs tackled a 4 mile course which took them a little off site, while the Super Scouts completed an impressive overnight course which was 18 miles long! All our young people took part in activities and challenges and improved their scouting skills! There are tweets from the overnight walk on the NESST site and photos in our gallery.
The carol concert saw the Peace Light arrive in our HQ, which is a flame lit in Bethlehem and distributed across the world, unbroken. The very peace lights that were in our HQ can be seen in the photo above!
