Scouts learn how to stay safe at council's SkillZONE
CUBS and scouts from the 1st Sevenhampton Group became the first paying visitors to the county council SkillZONE scheme in Tuffley on Saturday.
The county council-run scheme is a state-of-the-art educational centre for the public to learn how to deal with dangerous situations.
The centre recreates a village setting and gave the cubs and scouts the chance to visit 16 different situations, including on the road, in the water or at home.
Manned by volunteers, the SkillZONE opened its doors for the first time on September 17.

Councillor Will Windsor-Clive, cabinet member for communities, said: "Community safety is a serious issue, but the SkillZONE delivers that message in an entertaining way.
"Families showed great enthusiasm for the centre in a recent sneak peek and we expect that excitement to grow as the word spreads."
Under-fives can visit the centre for free, others pay an admission charge of £1.
