We are delighted to announce that Richard has been awarded his Wood Beads. When a leader starts in Scouting there is a lot of training to complete covering a wide range of things from understanding what leadership in scouting means to understanding how to ensure everyone is properly safeguarded to understanding first-aid and much more. It takes quite some time and effort to complete this training which is done online and at face-to-face courses and Richard has now completed this which is a great effort.

On Monday evening, Richard was awarded his beads (which you can see he is wearing around his neck in the photo below) and a certificate by our District Commissioner Julian Slade (who is also wearing his beads).

Congratulations Richard and well done from all of us at the 12th.
