Long service recognition for two Fenland scout leaders
Two local scout leaders have been recognised for their long service to the movement with one celebrating over 50 years of helping.
Fenland District Commissioner, Ian Bullard, joined 1st March Scout Group this week to recognise the dedication of two of their leaders.
He presented Linda Goakes leader of 1st March Cubs with an award to recognise her 50 years of running the group. She was second uniformed leader within the group to have achieved the five decades milestone as her late husband Michael Goakes – known as Skip – was the first.
Which means the pair together have dedicated over 100 years of volunteering between them to the young people of March.
Ian also presented Paul Dunham, leader of 1st March Scouts, with his 15 year service award.
1st March Scout Group was founded in 1909 and has a high retention rate of leaders and committee members.
The Group are always keen to hear from new leaders, helpers, and committee members and are also happy for new boys and girls to join them. If you are interested in volunteering for 1st March, please contact GSL1stMarchScoutGroup@outlook.com
