Four members of the Scout troop recently qualified for their Chief Scouts Gold Award, the highest award that can be gained by members of the troop. To gain the badge, scouts must hold at least
8 challenge badges including Expedition, Adventure, Outdoor, Creative, Physical & Global.
Amongst the many varied activities that the scouts took part in were; an overnight expedition, assisting in the organisation & running of the district St. George’s day service, taking part in the ‘Baht at walk’ over Ilkley Moor and researching into child labour and exploitation.
The badges were presented at the Hunsworth HQ by Assistant Scout Leaders, Robert Jackson, Karen Lomas; District Commissioner Mike Terry & Scout Leader David Bentley.
On the following weekend, the scouts attended a West Yorkshire County Scouts presentation at Bradford Cathedral, where Scouting’s Chief Commissioner for England, Tim Kidd, presented each of them with a framed Chief Scouts Gold Certificate, signed by the Chief Scout – Bear Grylls.
