Warkworth Rotary almoner and past president Alan Boniface presents the portrait to Kea Scouts Cooper, Ivor and Joni.
Warkworth Scouts have another picture to brighten up their den, following the donation of a portrait of the Queen by Warkworth Rotary.
Warkworth Rotary has had the picture for more than 30 years. It used to be hung in a prominent place during Rotary meetings, which formerly concluded with the singing of “God Save the Queen”, a practice which no longer continues.
The portrait was gratefully received by the Scouts, whose previous picture of the monarch was in poor condition.
Rotary has a long association with the Scouts, having donated $40,000 in 1996 to help fund the building of their den in Shoesmith Street.
