An Award and something quite exciting :)

For those who don't know I am District Chairman for Nuneaton Scout Council and yesterday was our St George's Day Parade.

St George was not only the Patron Saint of England but he is the Patron Saint of Scouts too. I love this parade and service, it is lovely to see all the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Networkers and Leaders together.

There are always awards at this service, some for the youngsters and some for the adults. Yesterday we gave out some amazing awards including our highest award for an adult - The Silver Wolf. This went to a very dear friend who has been in Scouting since before I was born.

I also received an award - 25 Years Service Award.

And now for the EXCITING bit...

I am starting a little venture - not for myself but for two charities dear to my heart. You can read all about it HERE .

It has taken me over a year to get this going - I have many more items in the process of being released, hopefully over the summer. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it, thanks.
