These hard working youngsters have earned a top accolade for their commitment to the Cub Scouting movement.

The 67 young people, from packs across Blackpool, were presented with their Chief Scout Silver Award in the impressive surrounds of Blackpool Town Hall’s Council Chambers.

The award is the highest one the children can achieve and is recognition for hard work in completing a range of activities and earning challenging badges as cubs.

Ted Cooper, assistant district commissioner for Cub Scouts, said: “I am delighted to be presenting so many awards this year and this highlights the amount of fantastic cub scouting that is happening across the town.

“Not every child that attends a pack gets this and, nationally, it is two in every 10 Cub Scouts.

“This alone goes to show that tonight’s award winners have shown true commitment to scouting and their personal development.

“I offer my warmest congratulations, and you should wear your badge and show your certificate with pride.”

Each child was presented with their certificate by the Mayor of Blackpool, Coun Eddie Collett.

He said: “Congratulations, I’m sure they have all worked really hard.

“I hope they can all progress in the movement and go on to achieve the Chief Scout Gold.”

Anyone wanting to get involved in scouting is urged to visit their local pack for more information.
