Gotham Scout Group’s Gold DofE Award holders

scoutsTwo of our network/explorers Ben Anderson and Charlie Howick went to London on Wednesday 25th of September to received the Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. They are two out of around 200 people to get this award this year. They received their awards in a lavish ceremony at St James’ Palace. They were presented their awards by Bryony Balen who is the youngest person to ski to the South Pole and HRH The Earl of Wessix (Prince Edward). This is a great achievement and we are enormously proud of them both.

Special recognition from the Chief Scout

scoutsThe scout group would like to congratulate their longstanding cub leaders, Kerrie Anderson and Julie Hogg who have given up their time and Wednesday evenings for the past 14 years, been on numerous camps, outings and parades, made camp fires and shelters, tied knots and bandaged knees.

They have been given a commendation for their ‘services to scouting’ from the chief scout Bear Grylls. We would like to say on behalf of the scout group, thank you!
