so you may make an informed choice... in times of expensive travel & possibly inclement weather. this year cost of a typical return trip from Ramsey was in excess of £13 petrol. & 30+ miles in each direction. (based on google map route & petrol estimation, correct at time of publishing).
For 2013 it was amidst the worst of the winter snow weather making the journey "possibly" questionable according to travel conditions.
The event is held annually in most, if not all districts & is not unique to Cambridgeshire.
"The Top-Awards" pertaining directly to 1st Ramsey groups age range are basically the handing out of your child's Bronze / Silver awards by a special guest such as one of the Queens Lord Lieutenants as they move from Beavers to Cubs, Cubs to Scouts etc..
It is a weekend afternoon typically alongside many hundreds of other Beavers & Cubs awaiting your turn to go to the rostrum to receive a commemerative woggle, badge & certificate, this year it was a trek around Cambridge (To Comberton college based on the outskirts of the city).
for over 470 youth members of Cambridgeshire Scouting who attended the i-Achieve awards event in Comberton.
This event was hosted by Liz Craig, County Commissioner for Cambridgeshire and H.M’s Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Hugh Dublerly Esq, CBE on the weekend of 19th/20th January.
Please Note: the "Top Awards" are acknowledged by r.s.v.p. booking your place at an event.
Your Beaver or Cub will have already received their badge via Akela on a pack meeting night, therefore attendance is non essential & no pressure should be felt to attend.
Those who do not attend should typically have their certificate passed on after the event to the troop, the leather woggle is only made available to those who attend the event.
(if a leather woggle is of concern to you, similar woggles may be purchased via scouting shops, scouting websites, & ebay from as little as 50 pence, there are many different styles both sober & fun to select from).
