Too close 2p de­cided

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Children’s Favourites -

Com­pet­i­tive Scouts and Guides raised more than £300 on Satur­day by com­pet­ing in the Tup­penny Trail chal­lenge.

The event saw two teams from the Ruckinge and Ham­street Scouts and Guides, the Tup­penny Tigers and the Ruckinge Roost­ers, com­pet­ing to build the long­est line made from 2ps.

The two lines, which ran along­side each other, stretched half way around Ham­street’s Vic­tory Hall Green.

The Tigers’ and Roost­ers’ lines were too close in length to de­cide the win­ning team.

Mar­garet Han­lon, a mem­ber of the par­ents’ group, said: “The chal­lenge def­i­nitely bought out a com­pet­i­tive spirit among the chil­dren.”

The event raised more than £300 for the group.

Mrs Han­lon added: “We are sure that banks in the area have seen a short­age of 2ps over the last few weeks, as we col­lected so many.”
