Melksham’s Scout leader was given the Award for Merit last month for her years of ‘outstanding service’ to the Scout and Beaver groups in the town.

Claire Neal, Group Scout Leader and Beaver Leader in Melksham, was given the award, formerly known as the Medal of Merit, by district commissioner Christine Broom.

Christine said, “Claire has guided the Melksham Scout Group over many years currently as the Group Scout Leader and as the Beaver Scout Leader.

“Group and Colony numbers have always remained healthy which is testament to the quality of the programme and the continuous hard work Claire has put into running it.

“Claire’s contribution to Scouting in Melksham has been invaluable; without her dedication and commitment over the years there would not have been a Beaver Colony to feed the Cub Pack.

“Claire has always supported the group, district and county fully, whether at district events, St George’s Day celebrations or the many other ways her Colony interacts with themselves and the rest of the movement.

“Claire is also badge secretary for the Wiltshire West District – a job that she undertakes with her relentless dedication, commitment and capability.”

Christmas Post – Summary 2016

This year we raised £596.22 with the Christmas Post, and delivered 2429 cards

This was 129 cards down on last year, but only £8.45 less money (with the card difference it should have been £25.80 short) so that was very good.

Thank you to all who helped and delivered .

Have a great Christmas and New Year
