A Scout cares for the environment.

This is the Scout Law, something all members promise to live by.

Seven-year-old Two Wells Scout Group Joey member, Lockie Green, showed he has these qualities and more when he was casino online presented with the “Promise” badge last month.

Throughout each level of Scouts, members work towards developing friendships, confidence, skills and understanding about a range of topics to attain particular badges.

The Promise badge is designed to challenge older Joey Scouts to gain a greater understanding of the Scout Promise and Law and to also learn about the group’s founder, Sir Robert Baden-Powell.

For Lockie it meant doing a lot of research and giving a presentation to fellow scouters as well as thinking about ways to help others in the community.

Two Wells Scout Group leader Amanda “Gecko” Vanree surprised Lockie last month and presented him with his badge and certificate.
