SILVER CROSS FOR NOTTS SCOUT

Silver CrossNottinghamshire Scout, Haydn Newbold, has been celebrated as a local 'teen hero' and praised for his bravery after confronting two thugs who were threatening a vulnerable young boy with a baseball bat.

Haydn Newbold, 13, was walking a youngster, who has learning difficulties, home through The Meadows of the City when they were approached by two youths. Threatening with the bat, they pushed the other boy to the ground and raised the bat to hit him. But Haydn grabbed the weapon and persuaded them to leave the boy alone.

Haydn, a member of 26th Nottingham (The Meadows) Scout Group, has now been awarded a Silver Cross – the second-highest bravery accolade a Scout can receive – by TV survival expert and Chief Scout Bear Grylls

PUBLIC AFFAIRS

HoPThe 22nd issue of the Public Affairs Bulletin is available to download here.

Harry, Tom and John are still looking for additional people to join the Public Affairs team as a Public Affairs Ambassador. They are looking to better reflect the demographic profile of Nottinghamshire Scouts and therefore would particularly welcome expressions of interest from girls and any Explorers from the ethnic minorities but they would still like to hear from anyone who might be interested.
