Clifford Dammers, DofE Manager says;

"I could not be more pleased for all the Reptonians who gained their Gold Awards this year. Their success is unequivocal testimony to their commitment and character, their willingness to embrace new opportunities, to work in a team, and to strive to bring out the best in those around them. That this is a record Gold year reflects the consistent strength and accomplishment of recent Gold cohorts, with whom it has been an unalloyed pleasure to work. It has been very pleasing, too, that our participants have been able to support the local community - Rainbows, Cubs, Beavers, Brownies and Scouts - and now the newly-opened Repton Community Café"
