As you all know I am a HUGE fan of the youth of today and if these guys are anything to go by, our future is looking good!
These evenings couldn’t have gone any better. What a great group of “Young People” they all were, they asked questions but even better were so attentive, they all were great and so clued up and it gives me great pleasure to make them all Young Purple Angel Ambassadors, and to announce that 1st Marldon Group the first “Dementia Aware Scout Group” in Torbay.
At the end of the evening Jack, himself an Explorer from Newton Abbot said,
Please can you share with all your leaders and scouting members how wonderful it was to see many of them in Church this morning to share the Remembrance Service – the readers and standard bearers were fantastic.Thank you again for your help in bringing the scouting groups to join the services, it is wonderful to see the uniformed youngsters, and particularly means so much to the older members of the congregation at times like the Remembrance service. All were a credit to you and the rest of the Scouting Leaders.
Elaine, the Beaver Leader, said “the Beavers were so excited to be sleeping in a tent with their friends and for two nights. They loved being with the Cubs and Scouts and helping to put up the tents”
John, the Group Scout Leader said “we have seen the group grow quickly in numbers over a short period of time across all the sections and thought it was time to celebrate our success and have the whole group camping together.
“A brilliant last night of term joint troop activity night, great to see all the Scouts having so much fun and working together, the adults certainly enjoyed it. Scouting at its best. “
“This is the second year that we have ran “Its a Knockout” in the Summer Programme. It’s great to see the Scouts from different groups working together as a team to complete the tasks, and more importantly they have really enjoyed themselves.”

This award is in recognition of the hard work carried out by the 3 leaders in all of the sections of the group.

A BIG well done, and well deserved .
