The Scouts (plus a Beaver and a Cub) were up bright and early on the first day of their summer holidays to go out and do a bit for the local community. The event organised by Ross Hamilton was called Picnic and Pulling with the national trust, to remove an invasive species called ragwort. The event was in the picturesque Whitepark Bay on the north coast. For many this was the first time at the beach of Whitepark Bay including some of the leaders. The Scouts worked really well even in the very hot conditions. Ross spent time chatting with and educating the Scouts as they were weeding. After their hard work they sat down and enjoyed their picnic before heading to the beach to cool down and have some fun.
We will be looking forward to any up coming events organised in the future.
