Dedicated adult volunteers involved in scouting were presented with awards to recognise their efforts.
In total 109 adults and children were nominated for awards within the Axe Scout District, which covers Weston and the surrounding villages.
The Golden Woggle awards evening took place at The Playhouse, where 317 people watched as the prizes were handed out to 14 winners.
Among them was John Crockford-Hawley, who has been president of the Axe Scout District since he was Weston’s mayor in 1983.
He was given the Chief Scout Bear Grylls’ Award to recognise outstanding service to scouting.
He said: “With more than 1,400 young people actively involved in scouting in the wider Weston area and with the support of a huge number of dedicated adult volunteers to lead and manage 18 scout groups there’s clear evidence modern-day scouting has real youth appeal.”
