Brighton and Hove Scouts are out and about having fun

The Argus: 6th Hove Scout Troop 6th Hove Scout Troop

Scouts from Brighton and Hove met up with 3,000 others and dib dib dabbled in some top fun.

Boys and girls aged between ten and 18 joined others at Gilwell Park in North East London, the home of Scouting and outdoor adventure.

The annual Winter Camp in January provides the opportunity for Scouts to take part in more than 70 adventurous and fun activities including abseiling.

Kieran, aged 11 from 6th Hove Scout Group, said: “Winter Camp was amazing.

“I got to have a go on all the activities I wanted to. The best activity was the quad biking.

“I can’t wait to come back next year for more activities and to meet up with all the people I met this year.”

Chief Scout Bear Grylls added: “Winter Camp provides a whole new adventure experience for young people.

“The challenge is all about empowering these scouts with the skills to survive the sub zero temperatures, and how to keep warm and comfortable in their tents.”

"dib dib dabbled in some top fun." What? Why does every article relating to Scouting need to sound as though it was written by a semi-literate octogenarian?

Oh well, at least you can identify a proper noun when you see one - do you know anyone at the BBC to whom you could pass this basic grammatical skill?
