LES Pugh’s Own Explorer Scout Unit from Penarth has been given a grant of £250 towards mapping software and new Silva compasses.

The mapping software will give the unit the ability to accurately plan any expedition, and confirm what they have planned the old way, figuring out times, distances etc.

This equipment will be used for training and practical use for their Chief Scout awards and Duke of Edinburgh awards.

The unit would like to thank The Grants to Voluntary Bodies department at the Vale of Glamorgan Council.
