It is important we get all nominations into County Office by Friday 24th July latest so they can be processed by the County Awards Board in time for the Gilwell deadline of 1st September.
Further information relating to the submission of Awards can be found on and many DC'S attended the Award workshop in April – see also attached aide memoir which may help relating to criteria and links below.
