The commendation in the 2023 Colwyn Bay Town Council Volunteer of the Year Awards, presented by the Mayor Cllr Colin Matthews and Cllr Abdul Khan, recognised the work done by all the volunteers at all levels of the group.
“The leaders, helpers, committee members and other volunteers give their time to enable; weekly evening sessions for Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts teaching and exploring skills, providing learning experiences away from the school classroom to enable youngsters to grow and become valued members of the community.“
“The Scout group has served the community for many years with a reputation for providing a safe space for youngsters to grow, learn skills and gain experiences which encourage them to become valued, respectful members of the local and wider communities.“
Assistant Group Scout Leader Sian James said she was “proud to accept the commendation on behalf of all the adults and young people involved in Scouting.”
Group Scout Leader Geoff Powell remarked that is was brilliant to see so many former Scouts also winning awards at the evening event showing the impact that Scouting has on creating a strong community.
Thank you to everyone who has supported and participated in the proud tradition of Scouting at the 3rd Rhos on Sea Scouts.
