Kings Langley Rovers being presented with an award for Community ServiceDuring 2006 the Kings Langley Rover Crew has been recognised by the Lodge as having extensively upheld the Rover motto of ”Service" and earned the Lodge’s bannerette.

The Kings Langley Rover Crew, in addition to substantial service to the Scouting movement, has contributed many hours to numerous Community Services projects and tasks. The following examples are just a small indication of their dedication, devotion and community spirit.

One of the key service areas which developed in the past year was a relationship with the local Rotary Club. Towards the end of the year the Crew participated in helping them with many of their major activities. The two biggest activities the Rotary Club run annually are a shopping night for the elderly and selling Christmas trees to raise finds. The Crew helped the Club with both these activities. On the shopping night the Crew invited the local Ventures to participate and helped over 150 elderly people from nursing homes with their shopping and also helped with the service of a light supper to compliment Carols afterwards. During the Christmas tree sales the Crew was involved in loading and unloading trailers at the beginning and end of days for the Club when the Club fundraised at Bunnings Warehouse.

The Crew also had many members participating in Anzac Day in Martin Place in 2006. The  Crew was also heavily represented at the 2006 Lord Mayor’s Picnic, where they helped supervise the disco area and provided assistance where needed.

The members of Kings Langsley Rover Crew continue to live by the Rover motto of "Service" to the utmost level and as such are an excellent example to other members of the movement.

On the recommendation of the Greater Western Sydney Region Rover Council, the service undertaken in 2006 by the Kings Langley Rover Crew is recognised by Lodge Baden Powell on 1st April 2007 with the awarding of a bannerette.
