Stamford and Bourne District Scouts host a successful swimming gala at Deepings Leisure Centre

Beaver and Cub groups from across the Stamford and Bourne area came together to compete in their annual swimming gala.

The groups met at the Deepings Leisure Centre on Saturday evening for a series of races to put their skills to the test.

The Beaver groups raced across the centre's smaller pool in a mixture of individual and relay events.

Children from the 2nd Stamford Beavers took home the trophy which they will get to keep until next year's event.

The older children from Cub packs across the area competed in the main pool across a range of distances to suit their abilities. The races also put a full range of swimming strokes to the test.

It was a clean sweep for the Stamford groups with the 2nd Stamford Cubs also taking home the trophy.

Event organiser Steina Bishop said: "This event takes place annually and the feedback I have had from parents and leaders is that the event was a great success with plenty of races to keep them going.

"The Cubs finished their races early so had some free time in the pool which they loved."

There are lots of volunteering positions for adults within the district.
