Date: 26th Apr 2017 Author: Scout Websites

Congratulations to Flick Buchanan who recently received the Queens Scout Award the highest Award achievable in Scouting. Flick was delighted to attend the Annual St Georges Day Parade at Windsor Castle where she was presented with her Award by Bear Grylls the Chief Scout in the presence of the Duke of Kent.
Picking up her award Flick said: “I have always wanted to become a Queen’s Scout. I wanted to embrace the challenge, build skills and experience amazing adventures – that’s exactly what I did.”
Chief scout Bear Grylls said: “All these young people have strived so hard to learn new skills and achieve their Queen’s Scout Awards, and I am full of admiration for their spirit, grit and determination. They have all served their community, lead others and undertaken expeditions in the UK and around the world. As Queen’s Scouts they are massive inspirations to over half a million Scouts in the UK and I am so pleased that Scouting has honoured them today. They are truly amazing.”

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
