Clyde Region was delighted to learn that earlier this month, the Chief Scout made awards to volunteers, recognising their good service as follows:
Elizabeth Wardrop is an Assistant Cub Scout Leader at the 183rd Glasgow. Liz has worked as part of the team delivering an exciting programme of activities to her Cub Pack for more than 10 years and is a great asset. Liz is particularly well known for her craft skills and is often found helping out at events in Great Western District as well as Auchengillan Jamborees. The Chief Scout has awarded Liz the Chief Scout's Commendation for Good Service.
Jean Grimm is the Group Treasurer at the 10th Coatbridge Scout Group. Jean has supported Scouting as a member of the Group Executive Committee then Group Treasurer for more than 30 years. During her time with the Group, Jean has been responsible for organising annual fair days, jumble sales, bingo evenings and social events to help raise funds for the Group. This is combined with the need to keep accurate financial records and ensure that the Group Executive Committee is kept briefed on their finances. The Chief Scout has award Jean The Award for Merit.
