Celebrating Scout Community Week

Scout Community Week 2014

Over 3,000 Scout Groups across the UK have been taking part in exciting projects for Scout Community Week. They’ve been making an impact in their local area and showing their neighbours just how amazing Scouting is.

3rd Winchester (The Worthies) Scout Group is building a greenhouse at Lanterns Nursery School so the children there can learn to grow fruit and vegetables. This eye-catching and unusual greenhouse will be made out of 1,500 used plastic soda bottles that the Group has collected. The Group had help for this project from their local branch of B&Q, Scout Community Week’s sponsor.

Beaver Scouts from 1st Middleton have been working on a project to transform waste ground at a local primary school. They’ve created six plots of flowers, plants and ornaments to attract bees and butterflies. Beaver Scout Leader Andy Lane commented: ‘It’s been great to carry out an activity that is so meaningful to the school and wider community. The project has also been a huge success in raising our Group’s profile locally.’

74th Belfast (RBAI) Scout Group has been busy collecting food and clothes for local charity Storehouse Belfast. The Group has established links with the charity, which aims to eradicate food poverty in the city and surrounding areas.
