The Scouts were presented by Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, UK chief commissioner, Tim Kidd and Chief Scout, Bear Grylls along with Ambassadors Warwick Davis (Actor/Director) and Dwaine Fields (Explorer) along with others.

They were also invited to a dinner by West Sussex Scouts on the Friday to receive congratulations from the county.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
