That leader rings a bell

30th Abingdon scout leader David rang a whole peal (2 hours 37 minutes, 5100 pulls) for the centenary of Cubs on 10th December on Brownsea Island.

It was a very worthwhile achievement and worth the trip down for it. It’s great to be able to combine 2 hobbies like this.

Scuba diving was fun!

The Instructors were very nice and clear. They took us through the Safety Procedures and we were all confident and able to enjoy ourselves. We played underwater hockey and swam around the pool. We had a great time!
