Exciting discoveries at paper day

IMG_0673Thank you so much to all our volunteers for such a great turnout yesterday for our paper collection and maintenance day.  It’s so much more pleasant when it’s not raining!

The paper collection seems to have been boosted thanks to the extra flyers sent out in the last few weeks so thanks also to those who have helped with delivering those.

The scout hut grounds are looking refreshed after a much-needed trim and the highlight of the day was discovering a bundle of old newspapers dating back as far as 1929. Our young (and not so young!) volunteers were excited to read about times gone by, including the Queen’s Coronation and a look back as far as Queen Victoria. You never know what might happen on a paper day – why not come down next time and find out for yourself!PicMonkey Collage
