Scouting and Compost Making in London

This is a beautiful place. And so near to the new London Olympic Stadium....


When Kevin and Margaret first bought (about 14 years ago) the place they were impressed by the quietness and the Scouts' Meeting or Club house just opposite. Their son became a scout (but of course) as Kevin himself was a keen scout in his youth!!

Now Matthew after a happy life as a scout is  a college student and about to set foot in the adult world!!

The cubs and the scouts continue to greet their familiar and friendly neighbour Kevin.....


Scouts Plaque.






Rhubarb.....Huge leaves but not edible. You only eat the root.


Pumpkin....lovely really.

Vehicle for the Scouts and Cubs


Compost making....this is a wonderful idea....

The parents come in droves to send and pick up their boys at this place and you can see how happy the parents and children are!!

The gardening project is simply brilliant! And in just a small plot in London the project is really thriving. In Spring...flowers will grow in their brilliant colours...white and gold have been selected.

Be Prepared!! It still jolts my heart when I read or see this. Once a Guide always a Guide. Once a Scout always a Scout....

Dedicated to all my cousins and friends  who were scouts before....sweet memories...
