Tonight at Old School Rooms Scout Troop in Stoke Gifford was special for Grace who received her Gold Chief Scouts Award presented by the Group Scout Leader Paul Smith who congratulated her on all the hard work and dedication to gain this, the highest Award in the scout section. To gain this Grace has spent 4 years regularly attending troop meetings and has completed all of the 9 challenge awards plus 24 activity badges and 10 nights away on troop camps and sleepovers which she has had to juggle with her musical talents, concerts and practice.
Grace was presented her certificate and cloth badge in front of the whole troop and after cutting her celebration cake all applauded her achievement plus in the hopes that they might receive a piece!
The troop have been fortunate to have had ten recipients of this top award this year and shows how successful they are with all the activities they take part in and a well balanced programme.
The troop leader used the occasion to remind all the other scouts that with a lot of hard work they might gain this top award and took the opportunity to thank all the volunteer leaders that give so much of their time for the young people.
Big Congratulations to Grace for this award.
