Duke of Edinburgh's Award Latest News

Home » News » More Awards gained

Two Bronze Awards to report. Matthew Carruthers helped at Four Marks Beavers for six months, worked out at the gym for six months, and chose reading as his skill, with Gordon Frater as assessor — thanks once again, Gordon! Finlay Parker undertook environmental work in Old Alresford for three months, played tennis for six months, and wrote computer programs in code for three months. They undertook a successful two-day expedition together in the New Forest in September.

Several of our award winners attended the East Hampshire Presentation Evening in Petersfield, where the Guest-of-Honour, Tess Burrows — who among other things has walked to the South Pole — gave an inspiring address.

David Allan (84739).
