A Leap of Faith under Menacing Skies...

227th Kestrels Cub Pack from Henleaze in North Bristol enjoyed an evening leaping for faith at Wild Place. The Cubs were lucky enough to brave the Leap of Faith, crate staking, climbing and the mighty Big Swing. Screams could be heard across Bristol as all the Cubs and their leaders stood up to their nerves to have a go!
