District Chairman Terry Bond MBE, District Commissioner Pat Griffin and Jim Holland, Assistant Group Scout Leader at 16th Lancaster (St Paul’s), were all awarded the Silver Acorn. “awarded after a period of no less than 20 years of specially distinguished service while holding an adult appointment.”

Derek Holt, Group President at 34th Lancaster (St Chad’s) and Helen Plumb, Group Scout Leader at Caton Church, were both awarded the Bar to the Silver Acorn, which “may be awarded after not less than five years of further especially distinguished service while holding an adult appointment.”

Pat, Helen, Jim and Derek travelled to St George’s Chapel Windsor on St George’s Day to the Queen’s Scout celebrations where they received their awards.

These five richly deserve the awards and show that the fun, challenge and adventure offered by Scouting really never does stop!
