Malcolm Moore has been honoured following, 50-years as a Scout Leader in Harrogate.
Malcolm joined the scouts at the age of 13 and now aged 69, has just clocked-up 50-years leading at the 14th Harrogate Scouts (Woodlands).
Malcolm Moore said:
I joined the scouts at the age of the 13, after I was knocking door to door collecting jumble and heard about them.
I took my warrant out before I went to University though.
Back in those days we would do everything, I can remember building canoes and taking them all the way to Hull.
The scouts are great for young people to be part of.
It instills camaraderie, skills of working together – if the young people live by the scout law then they won’t go far wrong.
Mark Turner, District Commissioner for Harrogate and Nidderdale said:
50-years is a tremendous achievement and I would like to thank Malcolm for all that he has given.
Over the years he will have been a positive effect to literally hundreds of young scouts.
