SSAGO Awards and Trophies

Cutlery Cup

The Cutlery Cup, awarded annually, was created in 2007 to recognise a current SSAGO member who has done great work for SSAGO as well as Scouting and Guiding.

The Cutlery Cup was created in 2007 by Will Carr (Manchester) and Jenny Mcdougall (St Andrews). Awarded annually it celebrates the achievements of a SSAGO member who has stood out at either club or national level in SSAGO or though their commitments to Scouting/Guiding.

Those nominated for the Cutlery Cup should stand out in at least one of the two following areas
1. Through their contribution to SSAGO at club (including Indie) and/or National level.
2. Through their contribution and commitment to Scouting or Guiding.

There is no requirement that nominees have sat on either club or national committees.
The candidate must be a current member of SSAGO at the time of nomination as either an associate or full member.
