The Chief Scout Bronze and Silver Awards are the highest that can be earned in the Beaver and Cubs Sections of the Scout Association’s progressive Chief Scout Awards scheme.
Beaver Scout Samuel, who got his Bronze Award, said he liked cooking marshmallows best and the worst was making ‘slime’ as it stuck to his fingers. The game he enjoyed best was Duck, Duck – Goose. Samuel’s mum said she was really impressed he had got his awards so quickly but was not surprised as he had worked hard.
Cub Scout Mateo, from 5th/7th Dukinfield Pack, said he liked making crispy bacon at camp on an open fire. His proud grandparents said they were very pleased with Mateo’s achievement. They also said he helps around the house with skills he had learnt at Beavers and Cubs.
Video messages were received from Tim Kidd, Alex Peace-Gaddy and Hannah Kentish from Scout Headquarters in Gilwell congratulating all the Beavers and Cubs on their achievements.
Suzanne Meadowcroft, ADC Beavers, said ‘All the Beavers achieved their awards while having loads of fun. Well done on their achievement.’
Steve Holloway, County Commissioner said he was very pleased of their achievements and they did themselves and their Leader proud.
