100_3364A wet rainy evening deserved messing about in the water and the Cub Scouts of Reigate District did just that at their annual swimming gala at Donyngs on 17 March. 15 teams entered for a busy programme of races, using all their skills and competitiveness to try and win the trophy. There was noisy support from the many parents watching and it finished with a novelty Leader’s race. The 34th Reigate took the trophy with 2nd Reigate and 5th Reigate (Clark) packs coming second and third.

The existing trophy is full up and a new trophy was presented by Chris Pulham, in memory of her husband John, who gave many years’ service as a Leader and latterly in the Reigate District Scout Shop.
