FIVE of Penarth Scouts' oldest members - who are part of the Scout Network aged 18-25 - have just come back from Luxembourg and Belgium, where they completed part of their Explorer belt.

The belt challenge is to walk 100 miles in 10 days with a limited budget.

These young people had £5 a day to provide themselves with food, water and shelter during the 10 days.

Once the challenge was completed the group, made up of Scout Network members from Penarth, Rhoose and the West Midlands, had a rest day in Leuven where they got to taste the local products of Belgium!

Penarth Network meet on a monthly basis as most are also volunteer leaders in one of the young sections. Scouting is open to Boys and Girls aged six onwards with youth membership from 6-25 years.

Scouting is run by adult volunteers - if you think you can help, from being a leader to helping with support activities on an adhoc basis, contact Julian Jordan 0330 330 1907 or visit
