MOBILITY 27 Scouts from South Yorkshire have been honoured by HM The Queen and International adventurer Chief Scout Bear Grylls for gaining the Queen’s Scouts Award Record number of 15 young people achieving the award from eXu Explorer Scout Unit, Sheffield Hallam District. The highest number of awardees during a 12 month period from one Unit since the award has been presented First Queen’s Scout from High Green for 60 years First Queen’s Scout from Shiregreen for 35 years HM The Queen and Bear Grylls greeted over 600 new Queen’s Scouts from across the UK and The Commonwealth at Windsor Castle on Sunday 29th April. The event comes at a boom time for Scouting following last week’s announcement of the Movement’s continued membership. Total numbers now exceed 525,000. Significantly, more and more teenagers are becoming Scouts with the Explorer Scouts showing growth of 12% in 2011. The Queen’s Scout Award is the highest honour in Scouting and is awarded for outstanding personal achievement. This honour is achieved by young people aged between 16 and 25 who have completed a range of challenges, which includes service to their community, completed an expedition in wild country, undertook a five-day residential project in an unfamiliar environment and learnt a new skill or developing an existing talent. Daniel Levick, aged 24 from Shiregreen, Sheffield said “Working towards my Queen’s Scout Award has been a big challenge but lots of fun. It gave me the opportunity to discover new adventures and make new friends. Balancing all the aspects of the award with other commitments and work has been a challenge but extremely exhilarating and rewarding.” Dave Cattell, aged 20 from Ecclesall, Sheffield said “The expedition I completed in the Lake District was the most challenging aspect of the award. The experience further enhanced leadership skills that I had already gained through Scouting. The team work required to carry out a successful expedition is huge, but the reward when you get to the finishing point is the knowledge that everyone pulled together to overcome difficulties. The skills, memories and friendships I have gained will live with me forever.” Louise Boddie, aged 19 from Ecclesall, Sheffield said “The parade at Windsor was a fantastic occasion and an opportunity to remember all the wonderful experiences and to be recognised for all I’ve achieved through Scouting. To be able to share the day with the amazing friends I have made along the way made it incredibly special.” Chief Scout Bear GLENN ORRAH CARPETS Grylls said “All these young people have lived the adventure of a lifetime to achieve their Queen’s Scout Awards, and I admire that spirit so much. They are huge inspirations to all the other Scouts in the UK and I am so pleased that both Scouting has honoured them today. They are amazing.” The Windsor Castle event has been held regularly since 1934 on a Sunday close to St. George’s Day (23rd April). St. George is the Patron Saint of Scouting. Since the Queen’s Scout Award was instigated, over 100,000 of these awards have been presented to young men and women for outstanding personal achievements and service to their local communities.
