Salute to Onchan's dedicated Scout leader

 

Onchan has honoured a local Scout leader for his years of dedicated service to young people in the community.

 

Group leader of 2nd Onchan Scouts Julian Ashcroft has been awarded the Crosh Pobble Chonnaghyn - or Onchan Community Cross Award.

 

He's been involved in Scouts for 33 years and helped generations of boys - and latterly girls as well - to learn new skills, gain confidence and enjoy the great outdoors.

 

The award is bestowed every two years for a public-spirited individual who has added to the quality of life in Onchan.

 

Julian says although scouting has changed a lot, traditional pursuits like camping and hiking are still popular:
