The night was made special for two fortunate Cubs, Matthew and Eloise who were presented their Grey Wolf awards, the highest award in the Cub section by the Honourable Baden-Powell.

After the formalities the Michael sat with the group and then gave some personal insight into his Scouting adventures.  Attendees heard an inspirational talk on scouting and how the lessons he learnt as a boy in Scouting gave him the confidence and determination to achieve his goals throughout his adult life.  He also spoke of his amazement at seeing his grandfather’s legacy thriving.  In conclusion our Chief Commissioner Neville Tomkins shared some further words of inspiration with the Cubs, Scouts and Venturers

The night was finished off with our local Rovers cooking a BBQ and The Honourable Baden-Powell and his wife, Mr Tomkins, District Scout Leaders Mary Page and Peter (Noddy) Quirk sharing a light supper and exchanging stories with both group. A great night was had by all.

Michael was even seen signing autographs.
