A busy weekend of awards and expeditions!

Written by Victoria Ross

It’s been a busy weekend for Whitley Bay Explorers!

A number of our Explorers were presented with Chief Scout’s Diamond and Platinum Awards at the Northumberland County Scouts Awards and four of our Young Leaders were presented with their Young Leader belts!

Meanwhile, five of our Explorer Scouts successfully completed their Bronze DofE Assessed Expedition, one of our leaders was attending an Adult Leader Training weekend at Hawkhirst Activity Centre and a number of our leaders represented the unit at the District Quiz.

We’ve also been busy finalising plans for our annual expedition week, Powburn 2017, which kicks off next weekend and will see over 100 Explorers complete their DofE expeditions!!

What a great weekend of scouting adventures. Well done to all those involved and congratulations to all of our young people on achieving their awards!
