Bajestic the GoGoDragon! is Norfolk’s newest Scout

Norfolk Scouts have been having fun welcoming a new member into their community – their GoGoDragon! called Bajestic.

Dressed in a Scout shirt and decorated with an array of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers badges, Bajestic was revealed at an event at Eaton Vale Activity Centre on Thursday.

Scouts from across the county helped shape the final design of the dragon which was created by local artist Jess Copping.

Alex Gill, a Cub Scout with the 33rd Norwich, Colman Road, came up with Bajestic’s name.

Norfolk Scout groups have also been taking part in dragon challenges, and a special Norfolk Scouts commemorative dragon badge has been created to link in with the GoGoDragons! trail.

Matthew Burrell, deputy county commissioner of Norfolk Scouts, said: “Working with Break and our artist, Jess has been great fun. It has been great seeing the young people get involved in her design and naming, and hearing the feedback from the sections enjoying the Dragon Challenge.

“I hope that seeing Bajestic on the trail will open people’s eyes to the world of Scouting and the opportunities it provides.”

Eighty-four decorated dragons will be dotted around Norwich this summer for the GoGoDragons! charity art trail which is being led by children’s charity Break and Wild in Art.

The trail will run from June 21 until September 5.
