Faversham Scout District Challenge
Our centrepiece annual event.
Since 2009 we have run a night event for the Scout and Explorer Sections in the District. In 2011 we also invited Faversham's Guides and Rangers.
This is the Network's chance to put our stamp on the District and show we are here, who we are and provide a fun activity for both us and the other sections.
Or as one member has put it;
"We are a
mysterious cult rock band who come out with a highly anticipated new album
every year before sloping off the radar until next time."

They found a fellow agent injured and in distress who they bravely rescued before the teams arrived on the outskirts of the Missile...
