Five teams from Barnsley took part in the very first Yorkshire Rose Challenge at Walesby Forest Scout Campsite. Teams from St Georges, Barugh, Lundwood, Penistone and Royston competed in an overnight series of challenges and had a great time. The Royston Team “Royston Rockets” narrowly missed out on the prizes by coming 4th overall. All teams had a great time and the organisers, Wharncliffe Scout Network  are planning to run a full weekend event next year.
