Tom Howells and Robert Sheppard were both presented with their Boys' Brigade Queen's Badge by The Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Sir Henry Aubrey Fletcher. This was at the Sunday morning Family & Brigade Service, when BB Captain Steve Kemp congratulated them saying, "They have worked hard in the last two years building on their President's Badges and developing their social, personal and communication skills, as well as being role models for the younger ones."
Sir Henry said that only 1 in 50 achieved this top award and that it was quite an achievement. "It involves skill-based training, teamwork, taking responsibility and recording everything, which needs perseverance. All these skills are needed later when they apply for jobs so it helps their CVs." Rev. Helen Kirk said it was a credit to them and would help them to become young men who could make a difference in the world. Helen also paid tribute to the leaders of both the Boys' and Girls' Brigades for their weekly commitment in preparation and leadership. "We are all grateful for all the work they do."
