The 1st Caister Scout Group has awarded eight scouts with their chief scout gold awards, the top award to gain as a scout.
To gain the awards they have worked hard on achieving many badges and challenges over the past four years. The scouts were presented with their awards on board the Caister Lifeboat by scout leader Lisa Garrod. Afterwards, they were extremely lucky to be able to join the crew of the lifeboat for an exercise at sea, visiting the Scroby sands windfarm and also the seal colony on the sand bank.
Afterwards, they joined the rest of the Scout troop for a fun and informative evening at the lifeboat station hosted by Derek George, lifeboat secretary, where they learnt about the history of the station and joined in with some hands on activities.
Paul Garrod, chairman of the lifeboat station, said it was a privilege to host the 1st Caister Scouts as they have recently adopted the lifeboat into their new group necker badges.
