Sian Miller, Catrin Breddy and Steffan Elvywith their Chief Scout’s Gold Awards, presented by Nia Griffith MP

Nia Griffith MP had the honour of opening the refurbished Scout Hall in Llangennech last week. Leaders and committee members have been busy renovating the hall, and taming the extensive grounds to make them more suitable for activities – including an impressive campfire area, a hammock area and space for archery. The open day provided an opportunity for the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers to showcase their skills, including cooking some delicious sticky treats in the ashes of the campfire. Nia also presented awards, including three Chief Scout’s Gold Awards.

Nia Griffith commented:

“It was a pleasure not only to see the results of the Scout Group’s efforts to renovate the hall, and develop the grounds around it, but to feel the real buzz and excitement of a group of young people and their leaders, who clearly enjoy what they do, and are always looking for the next challenge. Congratulations to all those in the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts who have achieved awards, but especially to Sian Miller, Catrin Breddy and Steffan Elvy on gaining their Chief Scout’s Gold Award.

None of that can happen without the willingness of the leaders, not only to keep the activities going week in, week out, for the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers, but also to enhance their own skills, so that they can offer a wider range of opportunities to the young people, like archery and shooting.”
