Kinder Walk and PL’s Expedition

June 22, 2014 Cobden, Scouts Comments Off

This weekend we have taken the scouts up into the peak district, and were treated with bright sunshine and beautiful views.

We met 16 scouts bright and early at 8:45am at Marple Station, from which we jumped on a train to Edale. From where we climbed Kinder Scout on the Jacobs Ladder path. Once we reached the top we split into two groups with the PL’s going on the longer route via Kinder Downfall before looping back to descend down Grindsbrook . With the younger scouts taking a shorter route, so they could catch their train back.

The PL’s then camped overnight in Edale and then headed up on the Sunday to Mam Tor and Rushup Edge, to complete their expedition challenge. Before heading back down to Edale to catch the train home, to recover from the weekend!

Well done to all scouts who came, we hope you had fun! Below are a few photo’s taken over the weekend.

There are two Beaver colonies in Marple, each with 24 Beavers. Etherow Beavers meet on Monday evenings and Brabyns Beavers meet on Tuesday evenings. Beavers are aged 6-8 years old. There is a waiting list for Beaver places so if you would like to be added to the waiting list, would like to know more information or would like to volunteer to help please get in touch using the contact section of the website. We will then reply to you are soon as possible.

Please note that due to the size of the current waiting list it is advisable to add your child to the waiting list before they are 5.
