It is with great pride and pleasure that today we congratulate our Scout Leader David “Midge” Bentley, who has been recognised in Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday Honours list today. David has been awarded the British Empire Medal for his 52 years Service to Scouting.
David joined the 11th Spen Valley aged eight and became a leader at 18. Now aged 69 he has dedicated more than 51 years to helping 100s of youngsters. His dedication has led him to seeking qualification in skills such as archery, shooting, climbing, and mountain safety, so as to ensure he was able to instruct or supervise in these activities, opening up these activities for Scouts in the area.
From all the Leaders and Exec members B.R.A.V.O. and a huge congratulations a very worthy achievement.
