Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Young Leaders from 8th Tynemouth joined others from groups across Northumberland County at Castle Gate in Newcastle today to be presented with their Chief Scouts Awards – the highest achievement they are able to gain in their section.
From the 8th Tynemouth, 4 of our members gained Chief Scout Bronze Award; 8 gained Chief Scout Silver Award; and 2 have earned their Chief Scout Gold Award.
In total, there were about 140 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from across the County at the awards, so making up 10% of those receiving the awards is a great reflection of the hard work the Scouts at the 8th have put in this year on their challenge badges, camps and activities needed to meet all of the criteria for the awards.
2 of our Young Leaders, who were previously scouts in the group, picked up their Chief Scout Platinum Award, with one of them also gaining the Chief Scout Diamond award.
Congratulations to everyone who has earned their awards today.
