Congratulations are due to Cubs from the 121st Glasgow who have completed the highest award for Cubs by achieving the Chief Scout's Silver Award
To achieve this award, young people have to complete 6 or 7 challenge badges throughout the two and a half years that they are in Cubs. A lot of hard work and dedication was put in by the boys and their leader and the activities that they had to do included; taking part in 2 overnight camps, completing a hike, visiting places of interest, organising a fundraising event, making a model, finding out about an international charity, trying two new sports, taking part in an act of worship and many more activities.
As well as achievements by their Cubs, the Warrior Explorer Scouts have been busy and Explorer Scout Douglas Oates has completed his Chief Scout's Diamond award which was presented with the award in the City Chambers.
To achieve this award Douglas had to complete twelve nights away camping, take up a new skill and a new physical activity and show progression and a lasting interest, provide service in the community for six months, plan and prepare a three day / two night expedition as well as many more activities.
