Chris Broom and David Ibbott

A SCOUT leader for Broughton Gifford & Holt has been awarded the Medal of Merit for outstanding service.

David Ibbott, who runs the Scout Explorer unit at Broughton Gifford & Holt was presented with the Medal of Merit, for outstanding service while holding an adult appointment in Scouting for a minimum of 10 years. District Commissioner, Christine Broom, presented the award on 17th September. 

Christine Broom, said, “David has helped guide the Broughton Gifford & Holt Scout Group over many years. The unit currently has 14 active members and numbers have always remained healthy, which is a testament to the quality of the programme and the continuous hard work David has put into the running of the unit. 

“David provides excellent nights away opportunities and definitely puts the out into Scouting. David’s contribution to Scouting through the years both within the Scout section and Explorer section in the local area has been invaluable. His dedication and commitment with young people has  helped to give them skills for life.

“David has always supported the group, district and county fully whether at district events, St George’s Day, celebrations, activities or the many other ways his group interact with themselves and the rest of the movement.

“David also received his wood badge certificate at Explorer leader level,  awarded for completing the leadership training.”
