A YOUNGSTER from Braunston has received the highest award in scouting.

13-year-old Joe Coleman, from Second Braunston Scouts, won the Chief Scout’s Gold Award. He carried out fitness, community and global awareness courses as part of the award.

The group’s leader Stuart Muddiman said: “Joe was very pleased to get this award. There are not many who get it.

“I am over the moon for Joe because he has worked really hard, was very enthusiastic and strives for perfection in everything that he does.”
