Six scouts at the 1st Adderbury Troop have achieved the top award possible.

The Chief Scout’s Gold Award is the culmination of a youngster’s time in scouts, and Ben Brown, Alfie Bullus, Danny O’Toole, Dylan Patel, Bryn Taylor-Evans and Iwan Taylor-Evans were all presented with their badges on March 3.

Andy Green, scout leader, said: “Ben, Alfie, Danny, Dylan, Bryn and Iwan have worked really hard for this award. To gain it they have taken part in various outdoor activities, learned life skills and also given up some of their spare time to perform valuable tasks in the community.

“Having six scouts all gain the award in one year is something we are very proud of.”
