IT proved to be a family affair when Worthing Scouts and their families took part in a district archery competition.

Organised by Lakota Explorer Scout Unit, the competition took place at 3rd Worthing Scout Group’s headquarters, in the grounds of St Andrew’s High School.

Taking part were members of Scout groups, Sea Scouts and Air Scouts, along with their families.

The Bilek family from Tarring left triumphant, after dad Martin Bilek was named men’s champion, Daniel won the Explorers trophy, sister Nadia was top Scout and mum Wendy was ladies’ runner-up.

Last year’s ladies champion, Kelly Bolton, and Cub champion, Finley Dee, repeated their achievement in the second year of the competition, with improved scores.

The winners received a trophy, gold medal and £10 Cotswold voucher, while runners-up were given a silver medal and £5 voucher.

Worthing mayor Vic Walker and youth mayor Jenny Hirst visited on the first day of the three-day competition and chatted with competitors before shooting a few arrows.

Kit Goulborn, Cotswold Outdoor’s Brighton store manager, was also present.
