Leagrave Scout Group


Falkes District Scouts, Bedfordshire

Leagrave Scout Group in the Community 8-9/06/19
10/06/2019 By Gary Sturrock


Leagrave Scout Group certainly stepped up this weekend in the local community. The weekend started at St Luke's Church, Leagrave High Street with an event called Transforming Leagrave in conjunction with the church the group carried out a free car wash with a prayer and also went litter picking on the Hockwell Ring area. 3 hour later and with the Hockwell Ring looking spick and span, 30+ cars washed and cleaned the event was a complete success.

Then onto Sunday and in conjunction with a generous donation of nearly £125.00 as well as a group of 8 staff from Argos UK Bedford Interchange Retail Park and 12 scouts, 3 leaders and the GSL from Leagrave Scout Group set about cleaning up and makeover of the Royal British Legion War Memorial on Marsh Road, Leagrave. Edging stones dug up and realigned, borders edged and lined, groundwork carried out, paths raked and weeded, bushes trimmed, grass cut and you can see the difference. 
The group will continue to maintain this site year round and continue the tradition of attendance at the Remembrance Parade every November 11th to remember those who gave their lives so we could have ours. 



A huge thank you to Argos UK and the staff from the Bedford Interchange store for their help, to Luton Borough Council for their support and the staff at the RBL Marsh Road branch for the use of facilities.

Leagrave Scout Group will continue its work in the community through out the year as it has done for many years past on Sat 6th July at St Luke's Church with the annual LYWAG Festival where we are supplying our normal camping equipment, mess tents etc etc along with a BBQ, tuck shop, mini crossbows, face painting, arts and crafts and this year a climbing wall, all free of charge for young people and the people of Leagrave, Lewsey and Hockwell Ring areas.
