SCOUTS refused to bow to the cold weather during their annual archery competition this month.

Eight of the Spen Valley troops were in action at the Fan Wood campsite, in Gomersal, where they worked in teams to compete for the top honour.

Only 30 points separated the top three teams, with the 14th Spen Valley Scouts emerging victorious.

The team – comprising Tyler Howard, Holly Airey, Christopher Smith and Joshua Zaccardelli – was presented with a trophy in honour of their achievement.

Second place was claimed by the 4th Spen Valley troop, with the 1st Spen Valley Scouts finishing third.
