1st Taxal help out at the park

The remains of the Balsam

1st Taxal Beaver Scouts lent Paul, the Memorial Park ranger, a helping hand this evening. 

The park has a growing problem with Himalayan Balsam and Paul is working hard to keep the problem under control. Luckily for us, keeping them under control involves pulling the shallow rooted plants up out of the ground and then stomping on them! A perfect job for Beavers! 

A great time was had by all, and we managed to clear several patches completely. The Cub Scouts are going to do their bit next week so hopefully we can stop the Balsam taking over. 

A massive thanks goes to Paul for letting us help out.

Heading to the next patch

Tesco Bag Pack - update

We'd just like to say thank you to everyone who helped, and to the generous community who donated, at the bag pack yesterday. We had a busy 7 hours of bagpacking at Tesco raising £891.62 for the Group. As well as the money we raised Tesco have also donated £200 to the Group and so the total raised yesterday was £1091.62. This is a fantastic sum of money and will be put to great use fixing up the Scout hut.

Tesco bag packing

1st Taxal Scout Group will be visiting Tesco Whaley Bridge on Saturday 13th June to help customers to pack their bags throughout the day.

This is an invaluable opportunity to publicise the group and raise much needed funds to help maintain our Scout Hut.

It would be great to see you and have your support. If you are able to help out on the day then please contact Steve Sidebotham or Linda Birch.
