Tasburgh scouts picked to attend Diamond Jubilee concert

Six Norfolk Scouts have been selected among only 24 Scouts from across the country to attend the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert on June 4.

The group from 1st Tasburgh Nelson Explorer Scout Unit was chosen because they are all young leaders working with other sections in the Scout group and comprises Becky Casson, 16, Grace Downer, 15, Matt Harlow, 17, Luke Mills, 16, Daniel Pates, 16 and Courtney Young, 15.

The troop's leader, Diane Bruton, will accompany them to Buckingham Palace for the show, which will include performances by Elton John, Tom Jones, Jessie J and Ed Sheeran among others.

Michael Clemo, development officer for Norfolk Scouts, said the Scouts had done well to be chosen, as there were more than 60 scout units in Norfolk alone and more than 1,000 Scouts.

He said: 'It is only the second time a monarch has reached a Diamond Jubilee in history so to be a part of history is a big thing.
