95th Birthday Badge Competition

Earlier in the year a competition was held, which was open to every member of 5th Dartford Scout Group, to design a new badge to be worn on the neckerchief of all our members to celebrate our up and coming 95th Birthday in December.

We received 29 entries and these were all sent off anonymously to our independent judges John & Marion White (Ex Leaders who now reside near the coast).

Once judging was complete the design was forwarded to our badge makers whose art department transformed the picture into a badge.

The winner was announced at the Groups recent AGM/Activities Day which John & Marion attended and presented Patrick Sykes a scout with Burne Troop with a winners rosette and showed him the finished result.

They later sent him tickets for a day out at Wildwood for himself and his family as a way of Congratulations.

Our thanks go to John & MarionĀ and Congratulations to Patrick.

We all look forward to wearing the badge come December.
