Phil and Connor presented the Wood Badge Mar 2018

Phil and Connor are amongst four 2nd Gordon leaders completing their Advanced leadership training to be recognised with the time-honoured Wood Badge. This is the highest leader award, though learning and honing of skills shall never really cease during a leader’s tenure.

Phil and Connor presented with the Wood Badge and Gilwell scarf

The Wood Badge is awarded on successful completion of specific training as well as a major project.

Ceremony included special commisioners Kevin Sewell and Faye Bowers

The badge is actually two wooden beads worn around the neck on leather string. The ‘dove grey’ Gilwell scarf is worn on non-group special events, and signifies their membership in the internationally-recognised 1st Gilwell Scout Group. Two more presentations are to come soon for another two 2nd Gordon leaders.
