A YOUNG Scout leader will join a parade at Windsor Castle next month after being awarded the movement’s highest honour.

David Baker, of Carlton Miniott, Thirsk, said he was proud to receive the Queen’s Scout Award after 14 years as a member of the 1st Topcliffe Scout Group, and five years as a Scout Leader.

Mr Baker, who joined the movement aged six as a Beaver, assisted in the local voluntary Carlton Miniott Youth Club and spent two weeks working at an RSPB nature reserve for his community service elements of the award.
