It was an honour for the 12 Cub Scouts of 1st Shenfield to be present at the Trooping the Colour on Saturday 13th June 2009.

Florence Cantle, Akela of 1st Shenfield Scout Group, was able to secure 20 places to attend the event through The Scout Association. With support from seven parents, the trip was a great success. The group watched the parade and the royal carriages go past the youth enclosure, where other youth members were situated. Seeing the RAF flypast was a treat to round off the trip before the group left London for home.
