Local Fenstanton gentleman Jack Dady died towards the end of 2006. Jack had himself been a keen Scout. He was a regular attendee at numerous scouting events throughout the years, supporting fundraisers in particular.
As a Scout Group we were able to send several representatives, young and old, to the service of thanks
giving for Jack’s life held in Fenstanton in January 2007. It was there and then we decided that we needed to find some fitting way to pay tribute to the great supporter of scouting Jack had been during his 93 years.
The Group decided to present an Award for each Section at the AGM each year. The Award is for the Beaver, Cub, Scout and Young Leader who have, in the leaders’ opinion, most reflected the scouting “spirit” which we expect from those who are out to make the most from their time with our Scout Group. This stems in no small part from the Promise and Law which each young person is expected to make and live up to, an example of which is shown below, and their attitude and approach to the opportunities we offer.
The first Awards were presented in 2008, and hopefully encourage our young people to understand that scouting is much more than simply turning up each week.
