1st Finchampstead was out in force at the Three Towers Hike on Saturday 5th April. The hike is a hike around the Berkshire Downs, with routes of 25km for the Scout teams, 45km for the Explorer Scout teams and 70km for the Leader teams. This year we operated 2 Scout teams, 3 Leader teams, and 2 teams from Phoenix Explorer Scouts who are based at our HQ, Finchbase, together with several supporting leaders and helpers.
