Congratulations to the Camelsdale scouts receiving the award:
The evening started with a reception where scouts spent several minutes with scout leaders, chatting about the highlight of their scouting career. As soon as the large table of refreshments was cleared by hungry scouts, the presentations began.
In her welcome address, Roxanna Bostock commented how pleased she was that many of the scouts had chosen Scoutabout as their highlight. The scouts were also praised for their smartness at the presentation!! She also reminded the scouts to make sure that they mentioned this prestigious award on their CV’s for future employment.
After the awards had been presented by Dame Penelope Keith, a photo gallery of the activities of the scout groups throughout the County was shown, followed by a video presentation on Explorer Scouts, introduced by Chief Scout Bear Grylls who also congratulated the scouts on their achievement.
With three girls and three boys on the list and that the evening coincided (almost) with International Women's Day (http://www.internationalwomensday.com/) we can be proud of our equal opportunities and achievements at 1st Camelsdale Scouts (Cubs and Beavers an' all).
