Clean sweep winners!

   |   By

In the Annual Torch race up the Chevin 1st Ben Rhydding put out two teams this year for the first time.

Before the race there is an inspection for the smartest troop.

As we were the current holders we wanted to retain the Torch and the award for smartest troop.

Expectations for retaining the Torch were low as we had 2 young teams out.

However both teams ran for all it was worth and they were rewarded with 1st and 3rd. An excellent result well done scouts!!

The performance was then topped off by also winning the smartest Troop award.

So well done to all the scouts involved in both running and those who turned up to support.
