Events 2015

7th Goodmayes Scouts group were busy on Sunday 15th March 2015 planting trees as part of the Woodland Trust Woods Project. This year’s event took place at Hainault Forest Country Park where they planted 420 trees.

Braving the cold and rainy conditions, the children arrived in high spirits armed with wellies and spades. With hard work from everyone, from Beavers all the way up to Explorers, all the trees were planted in a few hours.

Whilst enjoying themselves, the children understood the importance of what they were doing. Hanifa Dhanji from the Cubs section said “We’re doing this so that animals can live in the trees we are planting and it provides them with food and shelter”. Zakir Sharif, one of the Explorers said “It’s tough but good as we are contributing something good to the environment”.

Everyone had an amazing time and can’t wait for the opportunity again next year!
