Badge Competition for 50th Anniversary

Date: 2nd Oct 2021 Author: Robert Weston

The 1st Lifton Scout Group was established in 1972 – it was the year that the digital watch made its debut, the Swedish band Abba was formed and Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator was published. Since then our group has grown and grown! We want to celebrate our 50th anniversary with a series of special events throughout 2022 and we want to mark the occasion with a special badge. So what design would you choose for our golden anniversary badge? We’ve decided that it should be a triangular shape so that it will fit neatly on our scarves. Every member of the group will be issued with a badge and we will have some extras produced for you to add to your camp blankets. The competition is open to everyone, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Leaders, Parents, Grandparents and former members! The closing date is the end of October 2021.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
