Dorking District Cubs visited the Kingswood centre in Ashford in February 2017 to undertake their Adventure Challenge Award for the day.

"The main thing is how they (the cubs) were able to push themselves, the last child you see on the abseiling wall in the video clip is Sebastian who is in my pack, he’s 8 years old, his Dad James is our Beaver leader.  

Sebastian came to the top of the tower, but initially would not go down the rope, he was too frightened.  Robbie one of the instructors on the tower, suggested he go down, talk with his friends and if he wanted too he could come back up and have another go at the end of the session. Lo and behold, towards the end of the session Sebastian appeared at the top of the stairs, he really wanted to do it, and he’s almost smiling in the pictures!  His Mum Jo was delighted she told me last night he has a real fear of heights and of falling, but he wanted to push himself to see what he could do and the environment with the cubs gave him the perfect opportunity to do this, I sat with Sebastian and 3 others on the coach on the way home - they were absolutely buzzing about the day, so full of excitement and a real sense of achievement too”
