After more than three decades of the annual district scout trek, 1st Matchborough Scouts from Redditch have finally scooped the coveted first place, in their greatest achievement to date.


The competition covers the Hereford and Worcestershire scouting groups with more than two hundred teams competing for that top spot. The trek itself gets scouts to use orienteering, map-reading and general awareness skills around the Inkberrow area.
