What a jam packed year Kidsgrove Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps have had. A tour of the East coast of America for the Senior Corps in August, British Champions for both the Junior and Senior Corps last month (a title now held for three years in a row) and now a trip over to Northern Europe to compete in the European Championships.
This was the first time the Junior class had been invited to compete in Europe against other Junior Corps from Ireland, France and Holland. Kidsgrove Scouts Juniors are the first British Corps to ever compete in the European Junior Class Finals and did well reaching 6th place with a score of 66.30 The seniors took to the field during a torrential down pour of rain and came 2nd with a score of 85.60 with two standing ovations throughout their show, based on the ancient world of Eygpt.
All competitors and supporters had a wonderful trip and the supporters back home followed the event with the online webcast.
