Mud and rain failed to stop Scouts and Explorer Scouts from across the Ely area from having fun.

A total of 20 youngsters joined up with over 1,000 other Scouts from across the country at the Tolmers Scout Centre in Hertforshire to enjoy a weekend of activities.

Despite the grim weather, they enjoyed a variety of activities, including archery, climbing, fairground rides, laser tag and a gyroscopic swing.

Scout leader Wayne Braybrook said: “This was the first time we took the Scouts and Explorer Scouts on this type of camp and they loved it.

“It’s a shame we didn’t get to experience snow while we were there but the activities and the amount of mud on the site kept them amused for hours.

“We’ll definitely be making this an annual event.”
