Did you ‘Escape Ramsbottom’ ?

The annual district scout event ‘Escape Ramsbottom’ took place last weekend. The event is hosted and organised by our district explorers and is always a highlight in the scouting calendar.

The event involves teams of scouts planning and navigating a route between two places, all the while being pursued by teams of catchers out to hinder their escape!

The winning teams are the teams that get to the destination within a time frame, have the least number or no catches and in the event of  a tie it goes to the team who finished first.

The event this year was won by ‘9th Rammy Raiders’ a team from 9th Ramsbottom St Philip’s who managed to evade the catchers, cover 7.5 miles and finish in good time.


A big thank you to everyone involved and to the groups and teams that took part. We are already looking forward to next year!
