Jamboree on The Trail – 25th Anniversary

This years JoTT was special in many ways: it was the 25th anniversary of the event, it was great to have District events up and running once again and be able to meet with many Scouting friends once again, what great countryside and walks we have surrounding us, as well as the wonderful weather reaching 24’C and not a cloud in the sky.

As usual an intrepid few from 5th Dartford started from Sevenoaks train station (17m), with more members joining in the procession back to Dartford central park where the District had organise an reception area to receive their event badges and socialise whilst they enjoyed their well deserved drinks and snacks. 

Congratulations to all who participated, from those Explores that ran it from Otford (start point 21m) to the Beavers that joined us at Westminster fields. 

Kind regards
Paul Boreham – Group Scout Leader
