Porchlight Sleepout

Scouts and Explorers from Romney Marsh District spent the night in cardboard sleep outs on Fris 12th Oct to raise awareness of the plight of the homeless.
19 scouts from 1st Lydd; 1st New Romney and 1st Dymchurch raised £500 for he charity Porchlight.  Thankfully it was a relatively 'warm' night and they had a
good time but on the serious side it did make them think about the reality of not having a permanent base.
Thank you to all the Leaders who gave up their weekend to support them.porch

Power Station Hike Tent Donation

The explorers went to Dungeness Power Station to receive a cheque from EDF to pay for the new Hike Tents.

Some of these were already in use in the Lake District for the DofE Gold award Expedition taking place over Easter.

They had also been in use for the Explorers Practice Expeditions.

The explorers were given a guided tour of the Power Station and visitor centre.
