20k Challenge Hike

Scouts LogoOn one of the coldest days of the year Wendover Scouts, Guides and Explorers held a challenge hike around the Chilterns. The route took them from Wendover up  Coombe Hill and then through a tricky bit to Little Hampden crossing the valley up to Lee Common and then on to King’s Ash and the home stretch to Wendover.

All the teams walked unassisted and a few got lost and had to be put back on course but all made it home with the quickest team walking the route in just over 4 hours.

A good test of map reading skills and a good test of local knowledge on the leaders side was needed for putting them back on the right path! A big thank you to all the parents and leaders who made the day possible.

Young Carers Bucks

We support children/young people of 6-19 who care for a family member with long term illness / physical disability / mental ill health or drug/alcohol dependency. How can you help? 

Many young carers live in rural areas making it difficult to access our support.  We need volunteer drivers to help transport the children to and from venues, mainly in Aylesbury. If you are 23 or over with a  clean, full driving licence and a couple of hours to spare in the evenings and/or school holidays and are willing to complete a CRB check please contact Karen or Nima on 01296 392711 or email
