THE 4TH HASTINGS SCOUTS HAD A WONDERFUL COMMUNITY DAY IN SPECKLED WOOD.
The Friends of Speckled Wood Management Trust invited the 4th Hastings Scout troop to help in the Woodland as part of its Community Day. The Day traditionally has been known in the scouting world as bob-a-job day. The scouts new figure head Bear Grylls has asked the scouts to focus on their own community.
The scouts had a fabulous time pulling up the Japanese Knotweed . The Trust is hoping to obtain trees as part of its community project to re stock this area and restore it back to its original Woodland. The Trust has already six months ago contacted an agency in respect of the trees and will hear back if this is successful in October 2014.
The Friends of Speckled Wood Management Trust want to thank the Scouts for their help in this community project and look forward to the next event being planned.
