Seventeen of our scouts were joined by one from Seal to enter this year’s Plender Hike – our biannual district incident hike.
This time it was hosted by Westerham Scouts in the hills above the town. The teams navigated from base to base undertaking challenges at each one.
By the end of the evening they had
Made a hot drink Crossed a spiders web Built a giant Jenga tower Made a mini-pizza Lego making First aid Knot tying lots more
All while hiking for eight miles!
We finished the hike at
Waylands Scout Campsite, where everyone camped
Photos are somewhat limited as our leaders we out on a base, but here are a selection that we did manage to take..
We are delighted to say that our teams finished first, second and tenth. Well done!
“Every young person deserves an adventure” & that is what 30 4th Sevenoaks Cubs did today at Lower Grange Farm the Kent Scout HQ! Climbing, Zorbing, pedal carting & much more. Thanks to all the parents, leaders and young leaders that gave up their afternoon.

Home in time for lunch
The scouts did very well and all enjoyed, what was for many of them, their first camp as scouts. Maggie and Natasha did an excellent job as patrol leaders too.
A huge well done and congratulations to the 11 Cubs who were presented with their Silver Awards on Friday!

Scouts Victorious! Our team of scouts won the District Plender Hike last night – successfully navigating their way around the Kemsing course of a clear but chilly October evening.
: Thanks for the extra photos Carl. Update More photos and details of what happened in the event to come!
A big thank you to Peter and the team for organising it. The one downside of winning is that it will be us that organise it next year 🙂
100 beaver scouts from Sevenoaks district hiked to the 4th Sevenoaks grounds. They then experienced a year in a day, with lots of sun, water, sun lotion and paint plus a dollop of fun and then after a camp fire sleeping in patrol tents in the grounds…
