Lickey Scout completes challenge

Posted on September 20 2009 at 3:13:56

Christopher Watts, of Lickey End, has completed what has been called “the hardest challenge in Scouting”.

Christopher, aged 18, and fellow Bromsgrove Scouts Matthew Fox and Alex Yates took part in the Explorer Belt, which involved 10 days’ hiking with full camping kit across Switzerland covering 109 miles of often mountainous terrain.

They were joined by fellow Explorer Scout Susie Cox to be presented with their Platinum and Diamond Chief Scouts awards.

Meanwhile, the Queen’s Scout Award was presented to Scout Network Member Greg Perks. This is the highest award in Scouting and the first one in Bromsgrove for a number of years.
