Four Members of the 28th Ayrshire (Troon) Scout Group have achieved their Silver Duke of Edinburgh Awards and Chief Scout Diamond Awards. All four (Pictured L to R – Allistair Smith, Niall McHugh, Jonathan Currie and Jamie Tarrant-Boyce) completed their Silver at the end of 2013 and are well into working on their Gold Award and Queen Scout. They join a long list of 28th Members who in recent years have accrued an impressive 51 Bronze Duke of Edinburgh and Chief Scout Platinum Awards, 29 Silver Duke of Edinburgh and Chief Scout Diamond Awards, 12 Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards and 11 Queen Scouts! Allistair, Niall and Jonathan are Members of the Explorer Unit and Jamie is now an Assistant Beaver Leader. Their travels have included Expeditions to places such as Kenya, Virginia, Connecticut and Kandersteg International Scout Centre. With Explorers working on all levels of the Award Scheme it promises to be a busy year with many more Awards due.
