Have your say

A SCOUT from Rotherham is celebrating after winning a top award.

Super-scout Peter Bacon won the Duncan Herbert Memorial Trophy after conquering some of Britain’s highest peaks.

The trophy is awarded to members of the Rotherham Scout movement who are role models to other young people.

To win the prestigious trophy Peter had to complete a number of arduous challenges, including a climb which saw him conquer Mount Snowden at the age of only four.

He had also climbed all 214 Lakeland peaks by the age of 13.

The trophy was created in memory of Duncan Herbert, a former Rotherham Cub, Scout and Venture Scout, who died while climbing in the French Alps in 1980.
