On an unusually sunny day for this summer 126 young people and 37 adult leaders from Chester Scouts (Vicars Cross, Westminster Park, Hoole, Blacon, Christleton, Malpas and Saltney) took part in Olympuss, an Olympic-themed event with a programme based on five zones, one for each ring of the Olympic Symbol. All Districts from Cheshire took part in this major event at Cheshire Scouts’ Forest Camp at Sandiway. The activity took place over two days so that the huge demand could be met.

Joanne Turner, our District Commissioner, said “It was great that so many of our younger members were able to take part in this great day, which helped us all to get into the Olympic spirit – we have just launched an Olympic badge which recognises involvement by our members in Olympic-themed  activities. Olympuss was a great start to that.”

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
