Awards Evening 2013
The 1st Newent Scout Groups annual awards took place at the Scout HQ in Newent with our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts receiving their well deserved badges. Amongst the awards handed out by District Commissioner Martin Williams were the Hikes Away and Explorer badges to the Beaver Scouts who had recently undertaken an expedition to the Malverns. The Groups Quartermaster, Richard Lacey was awarded his Medal of Merit for services to Scouting and Beaver Scout Harvey was awarded his Chief Scout Bronze Award. After 19 years dedicated service as Group Scout Leader, Anne Lacey stepped down from the position. Tributes were paid to Anne for her dedicated work with the Scout Group. Anne will still be involved with the Scout Group, leading the Groups Cub pack.
Following the presentations the various sections entertained parents and guests with songs and humorous sketches.
