Queen's Scout Presentation at 1st Wootton

Posted on 29 February 2012 • 

Congratulations to Sarah Burnham, Assistant Cub Scout Leader at 1st Wootton Scout Group, who has just become a Queen's Scout.  Sarah gained her D of E Gold Award and then completed additional tasks for the Queen's Scout Award.  After giving a presentation of her work to guests and scouts at 1st Wootton's HQ, Sarah was presented with her badge by Mandy Holloway, District Commissioner for West Wight.  She will wear this with pride at the forthcoming Queen's Scout Parade being held in Windsor and reviewed by the Queen this year.

The Windsor Parades started in 1910 after King Edward VII offered to review the newly created King's Scouts after Baden-Powell had asked permission to use that name for the top award. 

The Queen's Scout Award is the highest achievement that can be earned by a young person under the age of 25 years as an Explorer Scout or member of the Scout Network.

Sarah will be presented with her certificate at the County AGM in May.
