St. George’s Day Awards

We are delighted to announce the names of those receiving awards in the St. George’s Day Awards List featured in this months edition of Scouting Magazine. They have already received the County Commissioner’s personal congratulations and celebrating their achievements at the County Awards Dinner on Sunday 25 March. To all the recipients many congratulations and thank you for your contribution to Scouting in Cheshire.

Silver Wolf

The Silver Wolf is the unrestricted gift of the Chief Scout and is only awarded for service of a most exceptional nature. It is not normally awarded until at least a Silver Acorn has been gained. In practice this means that it is seldom awarded for less than 30 years service.
