Super Cub Scout John Dent has achieved a rare feat - he has gained all of the possible activity badges before his tenth birthday.

His final badge was awarded by district commissioner Russell Brooks at the Christmas party of Swift Pack in Harpenden.

The commissioner said it was a remarkable achievement, especially as the number of badges has recently been increased by the Scout Association.

The group’s Akela, Chris Small said: “We think it’s almost unheard of to achieve this before the age of 10 so we’re really proud of John.”

John said his biggest challenge was the equestrian badge which involved mucking out horses.

He joins a very small number of Cub Scouts nationwide to achieve this accolade each year.
