Scouts earn highest honours

Scouts earn highest honours
The three Newquay Scouts with their awards.

THREE Newquay Scouts have been awarded the highest accolade they can earn as a member of a troop.

Maddie, Ruben and Judd from 5th Newquay Scouts (above) were presented with the Chief Scout’s Gold Award by Scout District Commissioner Steve Allen at their meeting last week after working hard to complete their Challenge Badges.

All activities the Scouts do in their programme contribute to the award of nine Challenge Badges, which cover everything from the traditions and values of Scouting to
understanding the world around them, leadership, teamwork and traditional pursuits such as camping, survival skills and wider outdoor sports.

Achieving all nine awards is very rare but if they do, Scouts are entitled to wear the Chief Scout’s Gold Award which is the highest accolade they can earn as a member of the troop.

Troop Leader Andy Nash commented: “We couldn’t be more proud of these outstanding young people for what they have achieved and they will act as role models for all our Scouts in the future.”  

Jacob, one of the assistant patrol leaders in the troop, added: “This is a really special occasion – it must be as they’ve put chocolate biscuits out and we don’t get those every day!”

Anyone interested in their child becoming involved with Scouting in the area can go to involved/map-page/#
