Night Hike award leaders

Night Hike Nov 16: a happy success with 5 groups of award leaders cruising through the delightful forests up Leith Hill on a stupendous night with a beautiful moon and great views of Dorking, Reigate and the Wembley arch across to London (you can see the arch if you look closely at the pic with the view). Groups were spot-on with their navigation and had an enjoyable time. Well done and well sung!
