South Marches Update

In November, South Marches District hosted an event at the Shire Hall in Hereford, where the efforts and enthusiasm of young people who have achieved the top award in their section was recognised.

The event was also attended by Major Patrick Darling. Major Darling is a former High Sheriff of Herefordshire, who farms the Caradoc Estate at Sellack, near Ross-on-Wye.

Caroline Powell, whose sons are connected to 1st Holmer group and were both receiving awards said -

"I would like to say well done to the organisers of a wonderful evening at the Shire Hall last night!! A HUGE congratulations to all those who won awards! Lots of very proud people under one roof I bet! "

There has been a huge increase in the number of young people invited, which is due to the success, growth and development of Scouting in South Marches.
