Leaders at 43rd Bristol Scout Group achieve success

At our AGM held on 25 June 2019 we were delighted that three of our Leaders were awarded with their Wood Badge for completing their leader training. 
Congratulations go to Martin Hargreaves (Beaver Section),  Nicky Woodfield (Group Scout Leader) and Chris Denison (Scout Section) for completing their training. We are proud of each of you. They were individually presented with their award by Chris Gavriel, District Commissioner for Cabot. 

The Wood Badge is made up of two wooden beads worn at the end of a leather lace. It has been awarded to adult volunteers since 1919. Its design took inspiration from a necklace bought back from Africa by Scouting’s Founder, Robert Baden-Powell, when he was serving in the British Army in 1888. 

A big thank you to everyone who came along to our AGM and listened to and learnt about the great teamwork, activities and behind the scenes work that has gone on over the past 12 months or so. 

Charles Elderton, Group Chair and Trustee, said “With time for all of us is at such a premium it is a privilege and an inspiration to see how much commitment and energy is offered by so many of our volunteers to make the 43rd such a special Group. Wow, what a team we have.”
