MORE than 800 scouts from groups across Eastbourne recently attended a weekend of jubilee celebrations at their local campsite at Bushy Wood near Hailsham.

The scouts enjoyed a host of exciting activities including face painting, climbing, archery, shooting, quad bikes, retro scouting, falconry as well as holding their very own Scouting’s Got Talent show, won by Joshua from 1st Hampden Park with his Diablo act. The camp had a regal theme with scouts wearing royal fancy dress and held a street party in the woods.

Christine Skinner, district commissioner, said, “A lot of leaders put a great deal of effort into making this camp a memory our younger members will hold for many years to come.”
