Family Day and Awards Presentation

This year our Family day was made very special by a visit from the Lord Mayor of York and the Civic party.  We were able to officially open the new toilet facilities at our Scout HQ which includes a disabled suite allowing our group to more inclusive.

The day included a treasure hunt around the city centre (always a challenge when set by Malibu)!!  We then returned to hold our Awards Presentation where all of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts achieved recognition for the hard work they have given on a section night and in the community. There was also a presentation of the annual ‘Otter Award’ for the Beaver, Cub and Scout that have given the most commitment both in and out of scouting.

We are very proud to announce that our Cubs and Scouts also received certificates for completing some training to become Dementia Friends.

The day was closed with a BBQ and family game of Rounders.  The pictures below demonstrate that Scouting is about ‘Family, Fun and Friends’
