Long-serving Kannegiesser UK service engineer, Simon Lee was awarded the Silver Acorn, which is awarded for especially distinguished and appreciably better than outstanding service to Scouting. Simon has been a Scout Leader for more than 40 years.
Each St. George's Day, Scouts across the world celebrate & renew their promise, as St. George is the patron saint of Scouting. As part of the celebrations youth members from the UK who have gained the top & most prestigious award, The Queens Scout Award, are invited to Windsor castle to be presented to the Queen or her representative.

Along with the Queen's Scouts & their families, other Scouters are invited to the parade. These Scout leaders have been invited to attend the event as throughout their Scouting career, they have been given various awards.
Simon Lee was presented his award, in early April, by one of Woking's youngest Cubs when he and his family visited his old Cub pack. His District Commissioner said: "Simon has supported Woking Scouts as a Cub, Scout and Network leader, with a blend of solid old fashioned outdoor scouting and up to date Network scouting. He's respected and liked by all. 7th Cubs probably travel the furthest of all Woking groups thanks to Simon and the annual pilgrimage to Yorkshire."
Simon was surprised to discover that his wife had organised some first aid training for him. All Scout leaders have to complete various training modules before they can be presented awards.
