Scouts Try Hedgelaying

On Sunday, Scouts visited Whitehead Diamond Jubilee Wood to learn about hedgelaying. After meeting the experts, who briefed them on safety and kitted them out with protective gloves and head gear, it was time to get hands on with a variety of tools.  They worked with loppers, axes, bow saws, extendable saws, garden shears and countryman bill hooks.  They were keen to learn and took in all advice and direction given. Well done to all who have completed another part of the forester activity badge by taking part in this event.
