They were given a world badge and thanked for helping the group to grow in every way.

A Living the Promise award was given for showing true dedication and outstanding conduct throughout the year. Receiving the prestigious Living the Promise award was Megan Norman who was thanked for developing in the scouts over and above what was expected.

All the 2nd Wisbech Orchards Scout Group leaders and parent helpers were praised for their efforts in setting up the year old successful group.

Nathan Cant, group scout leader for 2nd Wisbech Orchards said: “We launched with a full cub section with waiting list and a partially full Beaver Selection, along with a team of four leaders.

“We now have a team of eight voluntary leaders, an active committee of twelve adults a full cub section, new and growing scout section that already has 14 members on the books and we’re still growing.
