Windsor Castle setting for Queen’s Scout Award presentation

The parents, brother, and girlfriend of Framfield teenager Callum Jones looked on as he was presented with the top Scouting honour, the Queen’s Scout Award, at Windsor Castle on Sunday.

The award was presented by the Queen’s cousin, the Duke of Kent, who was accompanied by Chief Scout Bear Grylls.

Callum, 19, went to Uckfield College and now attends Aberystwyth University. He earned his award through outstanding personal achievement in service to the community, completing an expedition in wild country, undertaking a five-day residential project in unfamiliar environment, and learning new skills or developing an existing talent.

Callum is following in the footsteps of his grandfather Kingsley Jones who also won the Queen’s Scout Award in his youth, and he is continuing a family Scouting tradition. His father Ashley is District Scout Commissioner.
