Downe Scout Outreach Event – July 2018

With the help of West Wickham branch, and resources from the SE regional team, we hosted an outreach event at the Downe Scout centre. Part of a larger event, we offered free diving experiences to scouts and scout leaders. We had over 30 people give it a go in the pool, many of whom took to the water like fish. The instructors felt encircled at times by the scouts as they ran rings around us, braving the cold water in simple swimming gear. The weather was perfect for the day, with plenty of sun to dry everyone off quickly!
