TWO brothers have been awarded with the top Scouting Award in their sections.

James and Peter Lamb are both members of the Honeybourne and District Scouting Group.

Nine-year-old James, a cub and pupil at Pebworth First School, recently received the Chief Scout's Silver Award.

This is the highest award a Cub Scout can achieve showing James is creative, fit, has learnt about the world and his community, enjoys exploring the outdoors and keeps his Promise.

Thirteen-year-old Peter, a pupil at Evesham High School, is a Scout and has achieved The Chief Scout Gold Award.

This is the highest award for a Scout and saw Peter cover a similar range of activities to his younger brother, with emphasis on adventure in the outdoors.

To earn one badge, the global challenge badge, Peter organised the Scout programme for half a term, linking with Scouts in Australia and learning about the work of WWF.
