Mon 15 May 2017 — Nick Muir from Great Torrington receiving his 30 year support for Ten Tors

Picture below is of Nick Muir from Great Torrington receiving his 30 year support for Ten Tors. Nick first got involved with Ten Tors in 1987 as he was looking for a challenge for the older scouts in his troop 1st Torridge Sea Scouts, Ten Tors fitted the bill.

Over the years he has trained managed and supported group from Scouts in Torridge, West Devon, North Devon and Torbay. He worked at both Bideford College and Great Torrington school where he supported and managed ten tors teams. Ten Tors offers so many life skills we are very fortunate to the enthusiasm of the Army for offering this event to so many young people, 400 teams of 6 taking on the 35, 45, & 55 route.

We must not forget the Jubillee Challenge a 1 day event for the less able, 2017 was its 40th year. This year Thursday & Friday was very windy and cold, Saturday was cloudy with less wind Sunday was a gloruious clear sky and sunshine, the weather was kind. The phase that comes back from Ten Torers is ' I would not be the person I am today without the encouragement of trainers/leaders and the armed forces for offering this event I discovered what i was capable of'
