Scouts Day


We would like to say a big thank you to all the Scouts, Sea Scouts, Cubs, Beavers, Explorers and leaders who turned up on St George’s day to help the rangers with the task of revamping the forest School area.

The day involved the kids digging holes for 3 new pole lathes to be fitted in the forest school area as well as the planting of thirty new trees, spreading 3 tons of woodchip, making new paths, moving brash and wood.

The forest school site wasn’t the only area to get a bit of TLC

Sea Scouts and Explorers removed fishing line from the trees surrounding the lakes within the park and pulled in and removed litter with nets.

As well as all this they managed to do a huge litter pick in the park.

All in all the day was a great success, the sun was shining, and over one hundred young people turned up to participate.

It was fantastic to see so many young people working together to expand our wonderful Forest School Classroom and help maintain this glorious grade 1 listed landscape.
