Norfolk Coast AONB Scout & Guide Challenge
The Norfolk Coast Partnership are pleased to bring you a Norfolk Coast Challenge for Scout and Guide members of all ages
This challenge resource has been approved by Norfolk Scouts and Girlguiding Norfolk Commissioners and all activity link providers. There is a lovely unofficial/non-uniform/blanket badge available to purchase for all who take part.
The Challenge consists of;
- Taking part in at least 4 activities from our partnership members – we’ve recommended age groups but feel free to mix and match
- Getting out and exploring by visiting at least one site within the AONB – why not stay in the area on a residential or even sleep out under the stars?
At present (March 2020) strict travel restrictions are in place due to coronavirus which will obviously result in groups currently being unable to visit the Norfolk coast. However, most of the activities in the challenge from the Norfolk Coast Partnership are suitable for Scout and Guide members to do at home. Once groups can start meeting again, how great would a visit or sleepover at one of our beautiful coastal venues be!

Feel free to share the activity links and downloads with your members and help them stay connected with nature at this time. Do let us see what they have been up to via Twitter @NorfolkAONB or by email to email@example.com (with photo permission of course).
Managed by the Norfolk Coast Partnership, the Norfolk Coast was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1968. The 450 sq km area includes a coastal strip from Heacham to Bacton, plus outliers around the Sandringham area and between Sea Palling and Winterton. There are 46 AONBs in the UK. Along with National Parks, these are recognised as being worthy of special protection. The Norfolk Coast Partnership was set up in 1991 to work in partnership with local communities and all relevant organisations to safeguard the special character of the area. It is funded by Defra, Norfolk County Council, North Norfolk District Council, the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, and Great Yarmouth Borough Council.
