CREWE and Nantwich Scouts took part in a week-long feast of fun and adventure at Chamboree 2014.

The event is held every four years at the County Showground in Tabley, and saw several thousand young people and their leaders from across the county, country and overseas taking part.

Local Cubs, Scouts and Explorers were joined by Brownies, Guides and Senior Section members for the extravaganza, which featured a superhero theme.

A packed programme of activities included a stunt show, blast zone and off-site city experience in Liverpool alongside traditional survival skills and a superhero boot camp training area.

“My favourite activity was the IRIS superhero training because that was the most fun and there was so much to choose from,’ said Matthew Reaney from the 16th South West Cheshire Scouts in Crewe Green.

“The evening entertainment was really good too, especially the talent contest and the UV disco afterwards.”

Elsewhere featured science experiments, a chance to get creative, learn some circus skills and help to save the planet, plus a full programme of evening entertainment that included a talent show, rock night and silent disco.

Carnival Night saw many participants dressed as superheroes for a parade into the Chamboree arena.

“We saw thousands of people entering into the spirit of the event through their fancy dress outfits and campsite gateways,” said Cheshire Scouts county commissioner and camp chief, Graham Phillips.

“It’s been a fantastic week that I’m sure all who took part will remember for a long time.”
