Scouts from Calder Vale have won the individual and team trophies in the district archery competition for the third year running – despite being the smallest group in the area.

Scout Leader Alan Cornforth said: “We are the smallest Scout group in the district and in the smallest village, but despite this our Scouts and Cubs do a considerable number of things in the year and one of our Scouts achieved the Chief Scout Gold Award this year.”
