Scouts Camping at the Garrison

On Saturday 18th April, as part of the Great Tommy Sleep Out organised by RBLI, 4 Explorer scouts from the Royal Greenwich District bravely slept out under canvas at the Garrison in aid of helping raise funds towards the Royal British Legion. The night was rather wet and it was a tad cold early morning but watching the sunset over the barracks and the sunrise at the Garrison more than made up for it. A hearty breakfast of sausages and bacon was enjoyed in the morning. We are hoping this will become a regular event.
