On Sunday 23rd April 2017, St George's Day, five of our group members went to Windsor Castle to receive their Queen Scout Award. At the event they march into the Quandrangle at the Castle where the parade is reviewed byBear Grylls (Chief Scout) and a representative from the royal family. Following this they then attend a National Scout Service at St. George's Chapel. 

 The Queen Scout Award is the highest youth award in Scouting and is equivalent to the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award with some additional Scouting requirements. The award takes at least 2 - 5 years to complete. Most start the award when they are age 16 and are adults by the time they finish. All our members that completed the award in the past year are ex-Explorer Scouts, Network Scouts, Young Leaders or adult leaders and all are still involved with the 30th in some capacity. 

 Here is the Surrey County photo from the day, with our members on the far right - Jordan Boys Guest, Megan Stilwell, Seb Courtney-Walker, Gala Evans and Alex Coveney.
