Uckfield Scouts win the Sussex Downsman Hike

Four Scouts from 4th Uckfield (Phoenix) Scout Troop we’re delighted to collect the trophy for the winning Scout team in the Sussex Downsman Hike.

This competition attracts Scout and Guide teams from all over Sussex. Scouts have to cover a distance of 25 miles along the South Downs Way with the trophy going to the fastest team. Jayden Burgess, Lydia Munn, Holly Hamilton-Andrews and Daniel Gooch (pictured) covered the route in 7 hours 32 minutes; 16 minutes ahead of the second-placed team.

Scout Leader, David Brown, said he was so proud of these young people (aged between 11 and 13) for the way they had pulled together as a team and represented Uckfield so well in this competition
