There are 8 Explorers at present having gained a scout from an external group and 3 leaders.

Everyone has enjoyed their Christmas break and came back full of enthusiasm. It is unusual for any of the Explorers to miss a unit meeting or event.

Survival camp was a great success held over a lovely October weekend. They were put in a crash site scenario with the expectation to survive. The Explorers made their own overnight shelters and feasted on pheasant, partridge and orange sponge cooked backwoods style.

Network ran an evening for us including other local units.

We had our annual meal this year at the Harvester in Puttenham and have just been ten pin bowling.

Our plan for the coming year include:-

  • Techno Challenge
  • Youth Leader training
  • Other night hikes including the county challenge
  • Survival Camp
  • London monopoly with a unit from Norwich
  • FOD Camp
  • K9 in Switzerland
  • Awesome Camp in Wales
