The Scouts were back at Raphael's Park volunteering with The Friends of Raphael Park & Lodge Farm Park again. We kept out of Black's Brook this week, staying dry instead. Some of the trees had been coppiced before we arrived, creating a lot of long thin branches which had been left in the woodland. The Scouts helped by gathering up the coppiced branches and carrying them out of the woods.
The next task was to gather the material into bundles and drag or carry it to the other side of the sports and down into the woods there.
Finally, the Scouts helped position the freshly cut wood around the poles that had been planted in the ground to make a fence of natural materials.
The evening ended with some wide games which as the sun had set, were the first night time wide games we had played in two years.
