District Cheshire Hike Practice 3

February 24

Due to illness with one of the team and unforeseen circumstances with the other as well as extreme weather forecast we will will be reducing this weekends practice down to a single Day hike on Saturday with no camping.

This was the first of three, ‘two day hikes’ open to all Scouts & Explorers in the District participating in the Cheshire Hike.
It’s a great opportunity to practice for Cheshire Hike and Participation can contribute to a number of badges. Teams are expected to carry their full kit including Tents and Sleeping bags so participants can get used to walking a fair distance, weight while practice navigating.
Please note there is a flat £20 to attend practice 3, 4 & 5 whether you attend all of them or just one of them. If you book onto all three at the same time a £40 discount will be applied to the basket. If you book on to just one weekend and then subsequently decide to come to another weekend hike the website will recognise this and not charge you for the other two weekends.
The Start will be Ince Village Hall, 7 Pool Ln, Ince, Chester CH2 4NX  Start open at 0900 on Saturday 24th
Scouts will need collecting from Queen Charlottes Wood at approx 1700 on Saturday 24th
