On the 9th/10th June, Scouts and Explorers from 11 different Groups and Units took part in an overnight hike which started at Forest Camp and finished on the border of Staffordshire. The Scouts & Explorer hiked through the night, stopping for only a few hours kip in bivi bags – an exciting experience in its self! The Scouts did immensely well braving heavy rain on the Saturday morning and still smiling throughout!

Organisers Richard Hamilton and Oliver Chambers would like to thank all the members of the Hillwalking and Trekking ASU for making the event possible as well as Alec & Mary Wynne for organising the basecamp,  Louise, Stephen, Andrew, Dave for Driving the two minibuses as well as Breeda and Dave Worthington for providing First Aid support.
