Saturday Night (24th January) saw the annual ‘Golden Duck Awards’ for Explorers in Chesterfield  District take place at Loundsley Green Community Centre. This night in the District Calendar allows Explorers to look back on their year of Scouting, the adventures they have and the challenges they face.

The group who the VIP Judges believe has done the most exciting activities over the past 12 months wins the prestigious Golden Duck for that year.

This years winners were Canotila Explorers with 19 votes to 11. ‘Geoff’, as named by Canotila, will take residence with the group going on all their activities and having lots of fun!
