The Great 7th Hemel Hempstead Scouts Raft Race took place on Monday evening in Gadebridge Park, on the River Gade. It proved to a competitive affair! Putting the magnificent vessels the Scouts had constructed (out of dowel and drink tins) to the test was great fun, although the rafts needed a little encouragement to make it through parts of the river that had become overgrown. It wasn’t plain sailing, with just one raft making it to the end of the course. The 7th Hemel Hempstead Scouts is Lockers’ own Scout Troop, only open to Lockers pupils. They meet every Monday evening during term time.
