MO­TOR car race with 60 scouts was a great suc­cess.

The 5th an­nual in­ter­na­tional Pinewood Derby, hosted by the 2nd Amer­sham on the Hill wolf pack, took place on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 7.

Leader of the group, Rob Fore­man, said: “This is a very popular Boy Scouts of Amer­ica event but fairly unique in the UK, cubs are given a small block of wood to carve into a car of their own de­sign then race them down an eight me­tre grav­ity track.”

The Flackwell Heath cubs won the com­pe­ti­tion.

Mayor of Amer­sham, Liz Walsh, said: “I en­joyed it, but more im­por­tantly the chil­dren ap­peared to be hav­ing a fab­u­lous time.”
