A YOUNG Scout leader from Bulford has completed his training and gained the young leader belt.

Colin Scott has been a young leader at 2nd Bulford St Leonard’s Scout group for more than two years, and is one of the few people in the Salisbury district to gain the award.

Young leaders give support to a younger section and work with mentors to gain experience and complete parts of Scouting training before hopefully becoming a full time adult leader.

As well as gaining the young leader belt, Colin is promoting Scouting in the local area by running his own radio show and coming to the end of his media studies at college and is about to start television broadcasting at university.
