Cadets from 1461 Wigston Sqn hit the trails of Leicestershire in a bid to complete their Bronze DofE practice expedition. The cadets had already under taken some classroom work to prepare their route and plan their menus for the entire weekend. The cadets put their training into practice and set off towards Ullesthorpe Scout campsite in South Leicestershire. The weather was kind to them and all the cadets managed to complete the expedition, which was a little bit daunting to beginning!
Adult Sergeant Joe Bentley, said, “this has been a great weekend to get so many cadets through their practice expedition. The final qualifying is planned for later in the year, and things are looking good for some record achievements for the cadets.”
