At Welland Park Academy, they listened to some inspirational stories from a King’s Scout, the Reverend John Morley and from the District’s latest Queen’s Scout Hannah Dove. Hannah took centre stage for the morning, not only leading the parade with the Queen’s colours but also a small team of scouts and explorers to devise and present the celebrations.
All the beavers, cubs, scouts and explorers who have gained their Chief Scout’s Award over the last year were recognised and congratulated. Everyone renewed their Promise to do their best and then watched a skit featuring the best of British icons: HM Queen, Shakespeare, Churchill, Lennon and Hermione Granger, devising the scout law to ensure that we get the most fun out of being responsible citizens.
After a campfire song, attention was turned to how fortunate we are to be British and the responsibility we have for helping other people, focussing on the work of WaterAid
Janet Ackerley, Chairman of Harborough District Council who attended the event commented on how much fun it was and that she had really enjoyed it.
