Local scouts take part in The National Service and Parade

Christine Broom and Adam Baxter from Melksham both attended the St. George’s Day Parade of Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle last month.
The National Scout Service and Parade dates back nearly 80 years and is known as a day of celebration and achievement.
Adam who is the Cub Scout Leader in Melksham was selected to be part of the Colour Party. He was one of six Queen’s Scouts who carried the Association’s Colours at the front of the Parade and in St George’s Chapel.
Adam said, “It was a brilliant day, despite the cold and windy weather. Everything went really well and I felt immensely proud to be part of it and lucky to be have been chosen.”
Christine, who is the Assistant District Commissioner Cub Scouts with Wiltshire West District, was invited to the special celebration as she was awarded with the Silver Acorn award last year. The award is given in recognition of specially distinguished service.
Chris said, “It was a great honour and privilege to be invited and attend such a special service and ceremony. To watch Adam in the parade was a very proud moment for me, him being a fellow Cub Leader.”
