Gants Hill cub scout leader in running for Young Citizen Award
A 20-year-old who gives up her time to lead 36 cub scouts in fun activities, has been nominated for our Young Citizen Award.
Louise Taylor, of Southview Crescent, Gants Hill, was “instrumental” in organising Ilford cub scouts’ Diamond Jubilee celebrations, according to district commissioner Cliff Everitt who nominated her.
Louise makes a weekly commitment as an assistant cub scout leader with the second Ilford North pack at St Laurence’s Church Hall, Emmott Avenue, Barkingside.
She also gladly gives up evenings and weekends for events and camping trips.
Mr Everitt said: “She is a role model for other young people that work full time yet still commit so much to volunteering.”
