BOYS’ Brigade members were handed awards by Nick Clegg who praised them for their ‘outstanding’ achievement.

The Deputy Prime Minister was special guest at the presentation for members of 30th Sheffield (Crookes) Boys Brigade, at Wesley Hall Church in Crookes.

Mr Clegg awarded five President’s Badges, the second highest awards available, to George Firth, Jake Bennet, Tom Bowman, Adam Marples and Dan Padfield, and two Queen’s Badges – the movement’s highest award – to Patrick Delamere and John Padfield.

The awards recognise work in the community.

Mr Clegg said: “It was a real pleasure to be able to recognise the outstanding achievement of these young people in my constituency. The boys are a great credit to their parents and the wider community.

“Not only have the community profited from their work, but I know the boys have also benefited from the skills and experience they have gained.”
