Kidderminster

  

Kidderminster was excellent with hundreds of Scouts marching proudly along behind the pipe Bands.

With so many Scouts it meant that the Beaver Scouts and Cub Scouts attended St Georges Church, and the Scouts, Explorer Scouts and Network attended St Mary’s Church.

Ann Clark (DCC Programmes & International) was fortunate to attend the service at St George’s Church , where the Beaver Scouts presented ‘Their Heroes’

Each Beaver Colony nominated their own special hero and gave a short speech about them as others paraded around the church with Banners and Drawings depicting their Hero. The Beaver Scouts were amazingly confident and showed to all how Scouting makes a real difference to a young person.
