Nelson ESU live the high life!

16 new Explorer Scouts invested on the top of St. John’s RC Cathedral tower

Northern Norwich District Commissioner, Lisa Wright and County Commissioner, Matthew Burrell, joined Nelson Explorer Scout Unit from Northern Norwich on Wednesday 8 November when 16 new members made their promise at the top of St. John’s RC Cathedral tower in Norwich. This brings membership of the unit to about 30 young people.

Everyone had a chance to catch their breath after they climbed the nearly 300 steps to enjoy the amazing views over the city.

While up there, DC Lisa took the opportunity to present Martin Page, District Explorer Scout Commissioner, with his Wood badge. The Wood badge is the recognised symbol that an adult leader has completed all of the training necessary to hold their volunteer role.

Well done Martin and welcome Explorers!
