Five members of 1st Liss Scout Group were awarded the highest award that they can achieve in their section. Beaver Scouts Charlie, Adam and Robbie were all awarded the Chief Scouts Bronze Award. To gain this award they have had to complete all 6 challenge badges which have taken them almost 2 years to finish. Along the way they have also worked for numerous Activity badges, attended a Beaver Scout sleepover and of course had lots of fun!
Scouts Matt and Marcus were presented with the Chief Scouts Gold Award. This represents working on eight different challenge awards over a four year period. The challenges ranged from white water rafting on an Olympic course in January to helping out at a local after school club. They have been on various outdoor camps from small groups to camps involving 3000+ Scouts. The highlight for Matt was playing a bass guitar in front of an audience of 1000 Scouts in Cornwall earlier this year, whereas Marcus has been selected to represent the UK at the World Scout Jamboree in Japan in 2015.
The awards were presented by the by Assistant Country Commissioner for Hampshire.
