Young Volunteer Award


Congratulations to Hannah, 1st Wenvoe’s Beaver Leader, who has won the Scouts Cymru “Young Volunteer Award" of the year. This national award recognises the achievement of a young adult volunteer (aged 18 – 25) for their dedication, enthusiasm and leadership in Scouts in Wales. We are thrilled Hannah has won this!

Hannah, who was previously a 1st Wenvoe Beaver herself, has led and regrown the 1st Wenvoe Beaver Colony, which was struggling to stay open. In a year, since September 2017, she has re-energised the colony and kickstarted an awareness of the amazing activities and opportunities Scouts offers in our village community.

Hannah has led Beaver numbers increasing from 4 to 20 in five months! She leads a team of six adults volunteering on a flexible basis and is also developing two Young Leaders (aged 14-18).

Hannah‘s role in re generating the group and demonstrating how much fun volunteering is has been invaluable. It‘s been wonderful to see her leadership skills, confidence and enthusiasm for Beavers grow through her first year as Beaver Leader. Well done!

Congratulations to Arjinder, Brady, Ilan and Naeve, 1st Wenvoe Scouts, who came joint second (out of 7 teams) in the District Scout Gamer Hike (navigation and c omputer game challenge) this month!
