Three scouts from OSR Scouts in Stoke Gifford have achieved their Gold Chief Scouts Award despite being in lockdown during the Covid 19 pandemic.
Ollie, Emily and Oliver have completed the 9 Challenge Awards, Nights Away and Staged Activity Badges. In fact between them they have earned 116 Activity and Staged Activity badges and 63 Nights Away.
The Gold Chief Scouts Award is a real achievement especially during these times we see ourselves in at the moment. Four years of hard work covering skills, outdoor, creative, team work, world, team leader, expedition, promise and adventure activities all fitted in between camps and District/ County competitions.
All 3 of the scouts are Patrol Leaders which among other responsibilities means helping the younger members of their patrol. All 3 are great representatives of the OSR troop and are great role models.
The tradition of the troop is to hold a special evening to award the Gold Chief Scout Certificates and badges which are normally presented by a scout Commissioner but because there is a restriction on face to face meetings this celebration will have to be postponed.
All the leaders and scouts from OSR Scout Troop in Stoke Gifford want to say BRAVO to Ollie, Emily and Oliver and a big Well Done!
