In June the Scout Association run a Community Week where groups carry out work in their area – a more organised and supervised activity that replaces the old bob-a-job week.
7th Swindon (Abbey Meads) are looking for projects to increase awareness of the group and also, if possible, raise money for activities.
Previously the Beavers have cleaned inside a local church while the Cubs and Scouts tidied the churchyard and cut back hedges. The group has also undertaken a litter pick around Mouldon Hill Country Park.
An organisation can make a donation or children can be sponsored by friends and family to complete the task.
If you have any suggestions for projects, mail group secretary Phillippa Kennard: firstname.lastname@example.org
