Harleston scout beavers away to receive accolade
A young boy has been rewarded for two years of hard work, perseverance and dedication with his scout group.
Henry Brown, a member of the 1st Harleston Beavers, was awarded the Bronze Chief Scout Award last week, making him only the third youngster in his group to receive the accolade.
The seven-year-old, of Pine Close, Harleston, said: “I feel happy, grateful and proud. I was surprised to receive it.”
Since the UK-wide lockdown was imposed, the 1st Harleston Beavers have missed out on their weekly meetings.
The group has, however, been carrying them out virtually, giving the children a chance to keep in contact with each other and continue working towards their badges, with tasks set each week by their leader.
In order to achieve his award, Henry attended weekly meetings, took part in several parades and attended overnight camps – all while completing six challenge badges and earning at least four activity badges, of which he currently has 18.
