Feast of Lanterns 2018

Oct

Huge Congratulations go to our 58th Southport Scout Troop who took part in this weekend's County 'Feast of Lanterns' Competition at Tawd Vale and won the Novice category!
Each Scout Troop that entered had to create a display on the Saturday which was lit up and then judged on the Saturday evening. This was especially well done this year when you consider the wet and stormy weather each team had to battle against. Well done everyone!

Spearhead 2nd in the Explorer Dragnet Competition 2018

Jul
17

Dragnet is not for the faint-hearted. It encompasses at least 35 miles of hiking through open country over 36 hours whilst being chased by 'searchers'. The aim is to make it back to Base Camp closest to 11am Sunday morning with the most lives remaining. You have to be made of strong stuff to even think about applying. 2018 was the first year that Spearhead ESU entered a team into the competition. In the weeks running up to the event our weekly programme had involved map work, navigation, first aid and a day hike to prepare the team with the skills they would need to take part.
