Guides from 2nd Brechin joined together with 4th Montrose and 1st Arbroath to travel to this years Poacher.

The event is an international week-long camp for Scouts and Guides in Lincolnshire with over 5,500 in attendance.

The group of eight girls travelled with county commissioner Fiona Dalziel and country guiding development adviser Tracy Dryburgh.

The programme for the week included a wide range of adventurous, creative, competitive and service activities, as well as optional visits off-site.

Those present had the opportunity to learn new skills and earn badges and took part in activities such as campcraft, cooking and tent pitching.

A spokesperson for the Guides said: “Scouts and Guides keep coming back to Poacher because they are thrilled by the extensive activity programme and the exciting atmosphere.

“Of course there will be many of the high adrenalin activities but Poacher prides itself on creating new concepts and putting a different spin on existing and traditional challenges.”
