Queen’s Scout Award

One of our Young Leaders, Maria Belton recently completed her Queen’s Scout Award and was consequently invited to the annual parade of Queen’s Scout Award recipients at Windsor Castle along with two other district recipients. To put this into context to gain this award Maria had to gain the Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award, then complete further Scouting items. A very rare achievement with less than 1000 being awarded nationally each year. Photographs of Maria on parade at Windsor can be found under the Photo tab, or here.
