Colin’s Scouting career spanned some 36 years, starting in 1979. During this period he held Group appointments as ASL, SL and GSL at 3rd Hayes (St Mary’s) Scout Group and at District Level, as District Scout Leader and for 11 years as District Commissioner. He was also looking after Eagle ESU whilst running his own troop at 3rd Hayes and was an active member of the District SASU.
Colin’s service to Scouting was recognised in 1995 with the award of the Medal of Merit and again in 2003 with the Silver Acorn. Colin will be dearly missed by all. Through his involvement in Scouting, hundreds of youngsters and adults lives have been enhanced for the good, by knowing and working with Colin. His funeral service took place at St Mary’s Church, with over 400 people in attendance. Donations in Colin’s memory are to go the Harefield Hospital, and so far have reached over £1000.
