Two new tents have been bought for the Ridgeway Scouts, courtesy of Tring Lions.

After being given the cheque to buy the new equipment, scouts and their leaders demonstrated how easy the tents are to assemble.

The cash came from a fund that was set up in memory of former Tring Lions president John Lane, who was a member of the organisation for 27 years.

The aim of the fund is to support youth activities in the area.

Current Tring Lions president Mick Claxton said: “John would have been proud to have been associated with this project.

“I hope the scout group get many years of enjoyment out of the tents.”
