Scouts Community Service
The Scouts headed down to Brook Lane this morning to help out with the transformation of an open space. The Brook Lane Community Garden is an open space, just behind a plot of land where a Scout hut once stood, that lay derelict for years. A team of people from Bromley Council along with some charity workers and members of the local churches of St John’s, St Mary’s and our very own St Andrew’s have been working very hard to transform the space into a vibrant and enjoyable space for the community.
The Scouts were given the grand tour of the garden, looking at the various plants, vegetables, trees and even hedgehog hotels that had been put in place. After this they set to work on preparing old car tyres that would become planters for vegetables later on. They scrubbed and cleaned the tyres in preparation for painting so that they would help to create a colourful and vibrant spectacle around the garden.
They all worked very hard for 2 hours and had a great time. They all want to come back again to lend a hand, something that will help them to complete their community challenge badge. The team at the garden were very pleased with the work the Scouts did and would love to have them back, but next time with the promise of a BBQ at the end of it!
