It gives us great pleasure to have presented Alan Britt of 1st Abercarn the Silver Wolf Award. Initially created by Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouts, it serves as recognition for outstanding work and is the highest award in the Scouting movement. Britt - as he is known by friends, family, and Scouting friends from across the world - has many strings to his bow. Best known as 1st Abercarn’s Scout Leader, he has also acted as Cub Leader, sat on numerous committees, and helped at District level on numerous occasions, which has led to more than 50 years’ service to the movement and countless awards. A few other members of the Scouting movement also had something to say: “As an ex-Scout of Britt’s, it was a great moment to be able to present him with his Silver Wolf. There are so many leaders who have benefited from his wisdom and guidance; he is a real asset to Scouting.” - Richard Terrell, District Commissioner "I've known Mr Britt (Britty) for quite some time now! There is only one word to describe him…’Scout’. His values, his enthusiasm, and some might say tenacity, make him the perfect recipient for this award. Its been a privilege to be part of his continuing adventure.” - Robert Redmond, Regional Commissioner for South Wales we are sure you’ll join us in congratulating Britt for this huge achievement and recognition.
