  • Cubs Founders Day 24th February – Great success as usual, thanks to Daisy and the Team

  • Explorers Monopoly Run, London Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd March. All home safe and sound and very tired.  Some excellent results and a great time spent being tourists in London.  Well done Wyre Forest Explorers.
