Six Flintham Explorer Scouts have achieved their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s award this year.
They took part in a two day expedition, where they had to carry all their camping, cooking, food and clothing across the Nottinghamshire countryside.
For their volunteering they gave their time to Elston and Flintham village shops, the British Heart Foundation shop, taught cricket to younger children, helped out at the eco farm at Screveton, and the Flintham Beaver colony.
They improved their physical ability in hockey, military drill, rugby union, gym fitness and cycling.
They learnt and improved their skills in singing, Taekwondo, piano, home cooking and even helped design and setup the Flintham Scout Group website.

Over the half term, eight Explorers redecorated the Scout Hut ably assisted by three parents and the Explorer leaders.
A great time was had by all as well as a job well done. Although one observer candidly pointed out – “We would have used less paint if there were not as much paint on the explorers as on the walls!”
