Teams of Scouts were given the challenge to get themselves from one end of the hall to the other without touching the ground. They were given 3 logs and 4 chairs. Not as easy as you would think.

 JANUARY NIGHT HIKE

GP Station

On the train

The Scouts started the year with a very chilly night hike. 18 Scouts plus leaders met up at the Scout hall on a Friday night before walking to Gidea Park Station. From there we caught the train to Brentwood where we split into three groups to hike back to Gidea park.

It was cold clear night and at times we were able to stay on the right direction in the woods by using the stars.

The older Scouts stopped for a very chilly late night snack on top of a hill from where they could admire views across east London and the city.

The temperature was just two degrees above freezing however the slight chill made it feel even colder.

At times we were walking through a very hard frost.

Back at the Scout Hall by 03:00am there was a birthday to celebrate before trying to get some sleep. Birthday
