A young Bridlington scout has earned the privilege to be the first person to win a new camping trophy.

Robbie Taylor, of 6th Bridlington Scouts, achieved the award by working hard at a family camp held at Skipsea in October and helping organise the event months running up to the event.

Long serving member Peter Ward had the trophy made in dedication of his late wife, Andrea Ward, who was part of the scouting group.

The 6th Bridlington Scouts are part of the Wold and Coast District which includes Driffield, Nafferton, Sewerby and other surrounding villages.

Sharon Jordan, a 6th Bridlington Scout Group leader, said: “A big well done to Robbie on earning his award. He worked really hard for it and it is well deserved.

All of the other children who attended Skipsea Family Camp will get the trophy for a week each to say thank you for helping and doing well.

“All our beavers, cubs and scouts deserve recognition such as this as. Although they regularly receive certificates especially for their charity donations and work to help their communities such as helping decorate and maintain community centres even as far away as Hull and the main Scout Camp at Raywell, this award was a real treat for us and recognises the hard effort they put in.”
