40 years of service

At the end of a 10 hour activity day for Cub Scouts from Churt & Hindhead, held at the 1st Hindhead H.Q. on 24th June, Stephen Evans was presented with his 40 year Service Certificate by the Assistant District Commissioner for Cubs Chris Lloyd.  Stephen is currently an Asst. Cub Scout Leader with Churt and Hindhead Packs, but he has a long continuous service as a Leader.  He was a Wolf Cub (those were the days) and a Scout at 2nd Denham in Buckinghamshire, where he became an Asst.Scout Leader, before moving to the District Venture Scout Unit in Uxbridge.  He moved to Hindhead in 1979 as Scout Leader, his interests being very much in traditional Scouting, in particular camping, with 25 week long summer camps with the Scouts under his belt. For many years he hiked with the older Scouts along the South Downs Way in February.


Stephen gained his Queens Scout Award in 1976, which he received from Lord Baden Powell, the grandson of the founder Lord Baden Powell of Gilwell.


He was awarded the Silver Acorn in 2009 for specially distinguished services to Scouting.
