For the outdoor badge they went on sleepovers at Barnswood camp site and did several hikes.
For the fitness badge they did lots of exercises and healthy eating.
For the global badge they learned about other countries and how people live, work and play. For the creativity badge they built a spaghetti flag pole and a bonfire guy.
For the promise badge they did a church visit, took part in a Remembrance Day parade, completed some prayer writing and learned about Fair Trade.
Greg Carter from the unit said: “We’re really proud of them as it takes a lot of hard work and concentration.
“It’s unusual to have so many get this award in this short space of time.”
