Gone Home…Daniel West, Cub Scout

Hampshire Scouting was greatly saddened to hear that Daniel West lost his battle with cancer on Friday 27th November 2015, and passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family. The Salisbury Journal has published an article about Daniel – you can read it here.

Daniel was a Beaver and Cub with 1st Fordingbridge, New Forest West, and is well remembered for his energy for life and enthusiasm for Scouting. His beaming smile warmed us all.

On 18th April 2015, Daniel was awarded the Scout Medal for Meritorious Conduct, for the brave and inspiring way that he had coped with his illness. This medal was presented by James Ketchell, Ash Wilson, and Adam Jollans. It was a memorable day that filled Daniel with pride.Daniel West 270x182

A celebration of Daniel’s life took place on Monday 14th December, at Fordingbridge Recreation Ground, with hundreds of people of all ages attending, and a guard of honour provided by the Fire Service and 1st Fordingbridge Scouts.

Our thoughts continue to be with Daniel’s parents – Kayte and Mark, and brother David, at this very difficult time.

Tim Reed, GSL 1st Fordingbridge, and Adam Jollans, County Commissioner
