A bit of background to Activity Permits

The Adventurous Activity Permit Scheme is designed to show that all those leading adventurous activities for young people within Scouting have the skills, experience and personal suitability to do so. It is designed so that it can be tailored to be as flexible as possible, while at the same time providing a robust checking process for leaders in adventurous activities. The permit should be seen as an enabling device to show a person’s competence and provide reassurance to parents of the young people.

The County hill walking activity team are: Jeff Keeton, Paul Blackburn, Rick Raistrick, Hazel Wilby, John Varley, Edwin Kirkwood and Adrian Binns, we look forward to taking you through various elements of the hill walking permit during the evening:
