Remembering HM Queen Elizabeth II

Date: 3rd Nov 2022 Author: Jonathan Allerton

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was Patron of the Scouts throughout her reign, and we remember her with utmost respect and gratitude. Manchester South Scouts send their condolences to The Royal Family at this sad time.

There’s been a special relationship between the Scouts and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, with Scout volunteers supporting her coronation. Throughout seven decades, the Queen encouraged Scouts to do their best and do their duty to help other people.

Those joining the Scouts promise to do their duty to the Queen and follow in her selfless service.

The highest award in Scouting was the Queen’s Scout Award, where young people followed Her Majesty’s example of community, kindness and duty to the country. Since the Queen’s Scout Award began, over 100,000 of these awards have been presented to young men and women for outstanding personal achievements and service to their local communities.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
