ON Sunday, April 22, at the St George's Day Service organised by the 1st Dinas Powys Scout Group, Beaver Scout Leader Claire Foxwell was invested as the newest Leader in the Group, and Assistant Group Scout Leader Nick Phillips was awarded the Silver Acorn.

The Silver Acorn is awarded for over 20 years of especially distinguished Service and Nick has completed over 38 years with the movement.

All involved in local Scouting congratulate Nick on his award and welcome Claire into the movement.

Scouting is the biggest mixed youth movement in the UK, and many more local youngsters are keen to join.

If you can help in any way, from an hour a week to once-in-a-while, there is a place in Scouting for you.
