Raven of the Year 2015

We kicked off the search to find the Raven of the year 2015/16 last week, who will emerge as the top Raven in 12 months time? Only time will tell. Points are awarded for perfect uniform, strong performances during drill, attending activities and Bonus points are on offer for showing true Scouting spirit!

Aoife has raced into an early lead of 75 points with a pristine uniform and coming out on top to win drill. Harry is close behind after emerging victorious from the game and is on a total of 72 points. Dylan is currently sitting in the bronze medal position on 55 points, there are too many names to mention who are hot on their heels…. it’s early days yet, keep up the extremely high standard!!!
