The Haddenham Scout & Guide Centre got a rather splendid face lift on Saturday 22nd March, when a group of willing volunteers grabbed their rollers and paint brushes, and set to work re-painting the outside of the building.
Local cubs and beavers were provided with a little adult guidance and, thankfully, the building ended up gaining slightly more paint than the faces of the young volunteers!
Meanwhile other adult volunteers — parents of rainbows, brownies, guides, beavers, cubs and scouts — gave the inside of the Centre a thorough clean.
Head honcho, Richard Kendall was also present to carry out a quality control check. Sadly no-one thought to tell him the paint was still wet!
As anyone passing the building in Banks Park will now testify, a wonderful job was done — many thanks lads!
Now where did I put that shilling ....?!
