Rhiwbina Scouts welcomed into Lord Mayor’s troop

SCOUTS from Rhiwbina were among those from Cardiff and the Vale Area who were welcomed into the prestigious Lord Mayor’s troop last night (Wednesday 18 September).

The annual Lord Mayor’s Own presentation was supported and hosted by Cardiff and Vale College, recognising the achievement of the young people who have gained Scouting’s highest awards and valuable skills for life.

Cardiff’s Lord Mayor Councillor Dan De’Ath presented the young people with a certificate and a white Scout neckerchief bearing the City Crest.

Area Commissioner Julian Jordan said: “Life is all about the journey and achievements these young people have been recognised for in their Scouting lives so far. We are honoured to have this connection between the Lord Mayor and Cardiff and Vale Scouts that is unique in Wales and ongoing for over 25 years. We thank Cardiff and Vale College for their support this year in hosting the event.”

The troop is enlisted to support the Lord Mayor whenever requested, at events like the Remembrance Day parade and civic carol service.

Maria Leijerstam, the first person to cycle to the South pole gave an inspiring talk to award recipients on the challenges she faced from the planning stages through to the final expedition and currently holds the world record for the challenge for doing so.

Scouting caters for girls and boys aged from six, and more volunteers are needed to meet demand. Roles are open to anyone from the age of 14 to “80 plus” and anyone interested can get in touch at or call 0345 300 1818.
