Fifty five north Norfolk Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers were presented with Chief Scout 'Top' awards by the High Sheriff of Norfolk, James Bagge, at an activity day held at Gresham's School, Holt.
With the help of the school bursar Steve Willis and services manager David Olby, North East Norfolk District Scout leaders organised a fun-packed programme of activities in the woodlands on Gresham's main school site.
These ranged from rifle shooting, archery and shelter-building, to cart-making, a water line challenge and a scavenger hunt.
Assisted by district youth commissioners Ed Cubitt and Dan Porter, former Scout Mr Bagge handed out 51 awards to Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, as well as Duke of Edinburgh awards and Chief Scout platinum and diamond awards to 11 Explorers.
He congratulated leaders for their commitment to Scouting, which, he said, continued to be a force for good.
