silver wolfWe’re delighted to report that our Group Scout Leader, Peter Swann, has been honoured with a very special award from the Scout Association – the Silver Wolf.

The Silver Wolf was introduced by Lord Baden-Powell and remains the Scout Association’s highest award for service to Scouting. The Silver Wolf is the unrestricted gift of the Chief Scout and is given in recognition only of services to Scouting of the most exceptional nature.

Peter has been a Leader with the Group for almost 55 years after joining as a scout himself in 1953.  The Group is very pleased that Peter’s support for and dedication to the Group and to Scouting has been acknowledged with this award. Over this time, many hundreds of local children have passed through as members of the Group and benefitted not only from Peter’s instruction but his generosity and kindness too. Some will even have brought their children back to be members as well!

We’re sure you’ll all want to wish Peter many congratulations on receiving this well-deserved award. The Silver Wolf award will be presented at our Family Day on Sunday 26th June and we hope all current members and their families and any former members and supporters will be able to attend to help Peter celebrate this wonderful achievement and the receiving of his award.
