A Sun­day stroll with a dif­fer­ence

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

MORE than 120 sup­port­ers joined Ruckinge and Ham­street Scouts and Guides’ Jam­boree Trail Day walk to raise money for group funds and Can­cer Re­search on Sun­day. In near-per­fect weather, Beavers, Brown­ies, Scouts, Guides, Rain­bows and Ex­plor­ers were joined by leaders, par­ents and friends as they set out on their coun­try­side trek and back to their head­quar­ters. Strolling along much of the old Saxon Shore foot­path route some set out from Ten­ter­den at 9am, and oth­ers from Ap­ple­dore, Ke­nard­ing­ton and Ham­street. They all ar­rived back at the Scout HQ by 4pm for the an­nual meet­ing. At the meet­ing district Scout com­mis­sioner Peter Doy pre­sented long-ser­vice medals to Scout leaders Tim Beis­ley, who or­gan­ised the jam­boree event, and David Beech­ing, as well as a wood badge to Melvyn Beech­ing.
