3 Peaks Cyclo-Cross

Recently Settle Scouts supported their local community by helping to set up and clear away for the Three Peak Cyclocross, a gruelling, annual cycle race. Before the race, leaders, youngsters and supporters collected kit from the store in Horton and then put up barriers and cones along the road. One energetic committee member even climbed Ingleborough with race officials to put out way markers on the summit. After the race, the signs were collected in, as were all the barriers and cones.

This mammoth job earned the praise of the organisers who also congratulated the Scouts on the standard of their litter picking! As a ‘Thank You’, the Group received a donation of £750 and an invitation to help again next year. Well done, Settle Scouts!
