Mynydd Isa Scout canoes down River Dee

AN ADVENTUROUS Scout from Mynydd Isa braved freezing conditions to paddle down the River Dee.

Jake Jones, 14, who has been canoeing for a number of years, spent the weekend taking part in the annual Frostbite White Water Weekend, organised by Scouts Wales.

This year youngsters canoed from Glyndyfrdwy, Corwen to the Horseshoe Falls in Llangollen, then from below the Pontcysyllte aqueduct to Erbistock.

Jake said: “The weekend was amazing. It was really good to meet up with friends.

“We also worked on our group leadership skills because most of our group want to become coaches.”
