Tim Kidd UK Chief Commissioner said: “By championing our values, improving public perception and inspiring our members, Bear has helped Scouting go from strength to strength, valued by parents and respected by the public at large, attracting more young people and adult volunteers.

“We thank Bear for his tireless support of our work, both locally and nationally.”

“Each of them brings their own unique skills and talents and I know will help shine a light on Scouting’s amazing work. Thank you to each and every one”.
