Ash Green Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers are using this event to raise funds for our young people. We hope as many of you as possible can take part.
The plan is that the Explorers start out in West Malling, they want to Addington Village where they are joined by Scouts. Together they walk to Vigo Village where they are met by Cubs. We all then walk to Ridley Church where we're joined by the Beavers where we all walk to the Youth Centre for burgers/hot dogs and drinks.
Here are the details:
|Section||Starting point||Estimated start time||Total distance walk in km|
|Explorer Scouts||West Malling Village Hall|
|Scouts||Addington Village Cricket Club|
|Cub Scouts||Vigo Village|
|Beaver Scouts||Ridley Church|
All parents and friends are welcome to join us for the walk - the more the merrier.
Each Section gets to keep the money it's members raise. Last year the money was used by Beavers to subsidise sleepovers and to buy camp blankets, by Cubs to subsidise sleepovers, the Scouts used theirs to buy t-shirts. This year the Explorers plan to use theirs to buy polo shirts plus some kit for expedition work.
So its great fun, you get a Hikes Away Badge plus the JOTT badge shown above which you can wear on your uniform - and also raise cash to have even more fun.

Explorers have been learning navigation for their Duke of Edinburgh Award Expedition so they'll be doing the navigating - but under the watchful eye of organiser and route planner Mark Spurgeon
