55th Scout Troop through to Lord Derby Regional Finals

The 55th Scout Troop and the 1st Southport Lockhart Troop went on from their success in our District Lord Derby Competition to represent Southport at the County Lord Derby Competition at Tawd Vale campsite on Saturday 19th March.
The 55th Southport came 2nd out of the 12 teams competing and will now go forward to the Regional Finals. Lockhart Troop came in a creditable 4th.
The teams competed against other Districts in challenges that included First Aid, Firelighting, Pioneering, Tent pitching, Compass & map work, cutting timber (without physically touching the saw) and other physical brain teasers.
Well done to both teams and Good Luck to the 55th in the Finals!
