In the company of the Mayor and Mayoress of Medway Councillor Barry Kemp and Mrs Joyce Kemp and my wife Sheila we had the honour of attending the Award Ceremony for the Gillingham Scout Troops yesterday at Rainham School for Girls.

Awards were given to Beavers, Cubs and Scouts at various levels of Bronze, Silver and Gold.

We are pictured above with some of the Bronze recipients and below with some Silver Award winners.

Scout3We also had the opportunity of meeting the Gold Award Winners all of whom are attending the World Scouting Jamboree in Japan in July.

Scouts2All of the Awards were presented by the Mayor Councillor Barry Kemp who congratulated both them and their families and all of the volunteers for the fantastic  work that they do on behalf of our young people in his address afterwards.

The Scouts offer fun and exciting opportunities for youngsters of all ages and from the clips of video that we were shown they certainly have a great time all throughout the year.

The scouts are always on the lookout for adult helpers and it is a fantastic way of helping our community and full details can be found here

Many thanks to all the volunteers who run the various scouting groups , you are true heroes.
