I am pleased to announce that Chris Avery (Akela & Skip) has been awarded the Silver Acorn. This award is one of two that are only awarded at St. George's Day. It is awarded for outstanding service to Scouting and the recommendation is assess and approved by a national Scouting panel.
Chris has the option of having the Silver Acorn presented by Chief Scout Bear Grylls at the national St. George's Day taking place at Windsor Castle or having it presented by the County Commissioner. Chris has opted to have it presented by our District Commissioner, Steve Martin, in front of the Southern Norfolk District at our St. George's Day celebration on Sunday 23rd April.
The District St. George's Day Celebration (theme Hero's, Friendship and Promise) is being hosted by Hethersett along with 1st & 2nd Wymondham and will take place at the Hethersett Academy sports hall, the junior school sports field and our Hut. We are hoping for the parade to start at Hethersett Old School and are waiting for a reply from Norfolk Police HQ on this matter.
I'm sure that you will join with me in congratulating Chris on this prestigious award.
John. Group Scout Leader
