Badge updates

Following feedback from leaders across the country, UKHQ have reviewed and updated a number of badges to ensure that the programme, and the delivery of adventurous activities, remains up to date, relevant and safe for our young people.

Some of the current badges have been updated and four new badges have been introduced, three others have been discontinued.
