Flintshire Scouts make a splash at swimming gala

SCOUTS from across Flintshire made a splash at their annual swimming competition.

More than 100 youngsters joined together for the district event which was held at Holywell Leisure Centre.

Scouts from the Vale of Clwyd also took part.

After a number of close races the overall winners were 2nd Rhyl Scouts, who also won the Vale Of Clwyd trophy.

The Flintshire trophy went to Bistre Scouts who came 2nd overall.

Penyfford Scout Steffan Shickell said: “I’ve had a great time tonight, even though we didn’t win. I’ve got some friends in different groups so it was fun racing against them.”

Scout leader Sue Randle said: “I can’t remember the last time we had so many Scouts here. It’s really great to see so many Scouts all in one place and having fun, it’s what Scouting is about.”
