17 Leaders attended a training course on Sunday 5th June to prepare for running Rafting with their respective groups. The course involved building rafts using barrels, spars and knots and covered the relevant safety requirements to run traditional rafting with their group. They will be assessed when running an event for an Activity permit. As can be seen the Leaders learnt the advantages of Traditional Rafting such as design, pioneering, team work and having fun safely on the water.

Our thanks to The Bradley Stoke Scout Water Rat team for safety cover and West Country Water Park for use of the lake.

Who said Scouting isn’t fun for leaders
A damp cold day did not dampen the enthusiasm for building 3 rafts
3 rafts on the starting line
The racing was a little bit competitive!!
