Buckingham Scouts were among more than 100 young people from Bucks who received their Chief Scout Award on Sunday.

The award is the highest it is possible to earn in their section and was presented to 22 Scouts from Buckingham at Aylesbury High School.

Andrew Craddock, the lead volunteer for Buckinghamshire, said: “Scouting prepares young people for the future by giving them confidence and self-reliance”.

The first awards were presented to young people who had received their Chief Scout Bronze Award with the final award presented on the day a Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award.
