A Day of Celebration

Date: 2nd Oct 2019 Author: Cathryn Atkinson








We had the most amazing day on the 14th September as for the first time we celebrated all of our sections in our brilliant Awards Day. We were pleased to welcome over 90 Beavers, 70 Cubs and 140 Scouts & Explorers as well as their parents, guardians and guests. The day saw a whole host of activities and displays for people to join in with, and see a little more about what makes Central Yorkshire such an amazing place to Scout!

Photographs taken at the event can be viewed here.

We’re super excited to confirm next year’s date, the 12th September- I can’t wait to see even more people there.

As ever, these events simply don’t happen without some incredible people. Thanks so much to Cathryn, Ian, Taylor and Sophie for being the perfect sounding board (and for talking me down on my confetti ambitions!) as well as to everyone who arrived at 10am, then left at 10pm! Not forgetting you guys- All our incredible section leaders who help our Young People to achieve their Top Awards.
