Joint 12th & 3rd Andover AGM 2018 is a success

Last night we held a joint AGM and prize giving evening for the 12th and 3rd for the first time and it was great success. Well over 100 people attended and we actually ran out of seats and food !!  It was wonderful to see so many parents and Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from both groups and I am very grateful to all of your for making the effort to attend. It was a hot evening and even hotter in the hut with so many people inside so after a short presentation of the all the news, accounts etc. both sets of leaders presented their awards to the worthy recipients (see the photos) including the Tom Cable Award to Katie Fettes and The Rose Hendry Award (in memory of the wonderful Rose who sadly passed away recently) which was awarded to the Beaver who has done something outstanding, this year Zak Doig. There were many more awards so please take a look at the photos below and well done to all you winners.

There was also a short presentation from our new District Commissioner, Julian Slade – and Julian presented our Scout leader Stuart (Skip) with his wood beads which Stuart has achieved after completing his full training plan – well done Stuart. Then it was outside to enjoy a BBQ, not 1 but 2 bouncy castles, ice creams and a chance to chat to each other in the warm evening sunshine.

All in all a great evening – thank you to everyone who helped organise and run the event.
