2:00pm Tuesday 29th April 2014 in News
THREE Stourbridge scouts have been branded "amazing" by TV adventurer Bear Grylls.
George Cole, Stewart Watson and Jack Welling recently achieved the Queen's Scout Award for completing a range of challenges including service to their community, undertaking a five-day residential project in an unfamiliar environment and learning a new skill.
The 18-year-olds were honoured by Grylls, who was made chief scout in 2009, at a ceremony at Windsor Castle on Sunday (April 27).
He said: "All these young people have lived the adventure of a lifetime to achieve their Queen’s Scout Awards, and I admire that spirit so much. "They are huge inspirations to the other 550,000 scouts in the UK and I am so pleased that scouting has honoured them today.
"They are amazing.”
