South Marches Awards Evening


Recently over 120 young people attended an event at the Hereford Shirehall where their achievements in Scouting were celebrated.  Each of them had worked hard and completed numerous badges to achieve the highest badge for each of their age groups.  The guests of honour were Rear Admiral Phillip Wilcocks and Hereford Mayor Jim Kenyon, with a special appearance from Bertie Beaver.  We would like to thank them for taking time out of their busy schedules to join us.  Mayor Jim Kenyon is assocaited with 1st Hereford Scout Group and said “ It was a real honour to be asked, the Scouting Movement in South Marches is fantastic.”

Each and every award recipient has demonstrated an immense commitment to Scouting and are the embodiment of our Scouting values of integrity, respect, care, belief and cooperation.  A large number of Chief Scout's Awaard were presented; Broze for Beaver Scouts, Silver for Cub Scouts and Gold for Scouts.  In the last twelve months four members of the District gained their Queen’s Scout Award which is the highest youth award of The Scout Association.  

The biggest thank you goes to all the Adult Volunteers across the District who provide fun, challenge and adventure for our young people every week.  Without their drive, enthusiasm and devotion there would be no awards.
