2 December 2018
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of Brenda Milner, Richmondshire District’s long-serving Badge Secretary, who died on Sunday 2 December after a short illness.
Brenda served Scouting for over 60 years, having been presented with her Chief Scout’s 60 Years Service certificate and badge at this year’s District St George’s Day service. She also received The Silver Acorn in 2008. Originally a Cub Scout Leader with 1st Richmond Scout Group, where her husband, Brian, was the Scout Leader. She was the District Badge Secretary for some 40 years and also ran the District Scout Shop.
An active member of the Scout Fellowship and then Scout Active Support, she was also a former Treasurer for Colburn Scout Group and a great supporter of Catterick St Anne’s Scout Group.
Brenda’s husband, Brian, continues to serve Scouting as he has done for over 64 years. Our thoughts are with Brian, their daughters and the rest of the family at this sad time. Brenda’s funeral took place on Wednesday 12 December at St Aidan’s Garrison Church and was well attended by family and friends from the local community and Scouters from across the county.
