There was warm applause from the large congregation at the service held at the parish church for St George's Day when 9 Scouts were presented with The Chief Scouts Gold Award and 11 Cubs the Silver Award. 

The Gold Award of a certificate and blue and gold uniform badge is the top award for Scouts showing that they are creative, fit, learning about the world and their communities, are taking part in outdoor adventures and have understood the Scout Promise.

Julie Betteridge, Cub Scout leader, was recently awarded the Chief Scout Commendation for services to Scouting.
