Hometown hero


Scouting Ambassador, Julia Bradbury, travelled to her old stomping ground in Rutland to visit a local Scout Group.

Coming home

The TV presenter and National Scout Ambassador visited 2nd Cottesmore Scout Group on Monday evening to promote Scouting in her home county.

Julia went along to Rutland to meet a group from her area and was greeted by 60 young people including Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Young Leaders. During her visit, the Scout Ambassador presented two Chief Scout Gold Award certificates. She then placed new neckers around the latest invested Cubs and Scouts. 

Julia also received a special handmade card and her own named group hoodie as a thank you for her visit.

Bears and BBQs

As well as handing out awards Julia also took part in a Q&A, where she answered all kinds of questions from the Group. The young people asked her about meeting the bears and the whales during her Planet Earth TV series, and what her favourite adventures have been.

To finish off the memorable evening, Julia and the Group kicked back and enjoyed a barbecue.
