Hard working Scouts, Cubs, Beavers and Explorers from across the Rushcliffe district received some of scouting’s top awards at their annual presentation evening held at Rushcliffe Arena last month.
Present at the ceremony, which was spread across two evenings, was Rushcliffe District commissioner Fiona Burrows and Rushcliffe’s Deputy Mayor Sue Mallender.
Among the honours handed out were Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Chief Scouts awards, right up to the Duke of Edinburgh Award, which is regarded as the worlds leading youth achievement award.
Speaking of the recipients District Commissioner Fiona Burrows, who was full of praise, said: “I’m really pleased to see so many of our young people achieve the top awards in scouting. Each week they do work incredibly hard to gain these awards. The benefits to our young people in gaining these accolades are immeasurable, with evidence showing that they are more sociable, have better mental health, increased team building skills and are more employable.
