Three Scouts have gained the Chief Scouts Gold Award, which is the highest award that can be gained in the Scout Troop. They are Sebastian Roney, Thomas St George, and Harry Hill.
Sebastian and Thomas have previously gained the Chief Scouts Award in both the Beavers and Cubs.
All three have now gone up to Explorers.
We are trying to work out which Scout has the record for the highest number of activity badges gained in the Troop as Sebastian, Thomas and Ali Nijabat all have between 40 and 44 badges each and we are checking the badge records.
Other Scouts who have done well are Eddie Adams 34 badges, Steven Nicholaou 32, Harry Hill 31, James Maycock 28, Blue Winnock 22, Ella Magen 21, Billy Ayto 19.
All these achievements are added to our 27th Chingford Scouts Honours Book.
