On Saturday 18th September 2021, 88 young people took part in the Greater Manchester West Hiking Competition for Scouts and Explorers – the BST Adventure. The activity taker places at Rivington in the grasslands surrounding Rivington Pike and Winter Hill. Teams have 4 hours to check-in at all the mandatory checkpoints and visit some of the optional checkpoints to receive extra points.
The weather was good and for those lucky enough to be on the right side of the hill, there we a Red Arrows fly past half way through the event.
We had a range of abilities and experience from those who have entered for many years to those that are new to scouting. They all did very very well and should be proud of their gained experience and knowledge in hill walking, navigation and team work.
