Croatia challenge

Explorer trio head east for Scouts award

Adventurous Scouts are preparing for an expedition to Croatia in a bid to recieve one of the most challenging awards available.

The three Explorer Scouts from Upper Caldecote are set for the challenge of a lifetime as they aim for their Explorer Belt, which encourages young people to gain a deeper understanding of another country.

Rachel Randle, 22, of Biggleswade Road will be leading Richard Holiday, 18, of Shakespeare Drive and Allan Robertson-Cowley, 17, of Dean Way as they head off next month to trek around 160 km.

Rachel said: "I can't wait. It is going to be exhausting but it should be good fun."

The group will have to complete a major project during the expedition, keep a diary of their travels and give a presentation when they return.

The project will see them investigating the post war development of the region and the effect on tourism and they hope to get as many first hand accounts as possible.

Their route will take them through major tourist centres and quiet rural areas to compare the level of development, and they also hope to meet local dignitaries to discover their views on development and hopes for the future.

For the full story see the July 30 edition of the Chronicle.
