Zorb thrill for Ottery scouts
A group of 16 scouts from Ottery St Mary got an extreme reward with a chance to go zorbing.
The scouts were given the opportunity to go through their commitment and attendance during the year.
Those awarded the necessary number of points are invited to take part in a special activity, and this year the group travelled to neighbouring Dorset.
There they spent the afternoon experiencing zorbing, essentially rolling down a hill side in a giant ball.
One scout, Hazel, 13 said: “It felt like being in a giant washing machine and when you got to the bottom and stopped it felt like you were still spinning round.”

John Green, group scout leader, added: “Ottery Scout Group provides a wide range of activities for our young people to learn skills and participate in activities many organisations and schools shy away from due to health and safety considerations. We continue to offer these chances whilst minimising the risks.”
