Tonight at the Old School Rooms Scout Troop in Stoke Gifford first face to face meeting it was an evening of celebrating all the good work the troop has been doing during the lock down, amongst scouts being invested into the troop and receiving either Silver (cubs) or gold chief scouts awards we were also privileged to have three of the adults being awarded their Chief Scouts Commendations from Bear and presented by our Group Scout Leader Paul Smith in front of the scouts and parents.
The Chief Scout’s Commendation for Good Service is given in respect of not less than 5 years good service, which stands out. It should be regarded as the Chief Scout’s recognition of the very real contribution made to the Association by the individuals who have completed all their training.
The three leaders, Kathryn Gibbs, Alison Emsley and Michael Webb all contribute to a very successful troop and all their time and energy pays off with the young people achieving skills for life and having a fun filled programme.
A big congratulations to all three leaders for being recognised and here’s to many more years of scouting in the community.
