2nd Abingdon Scout Group

Lighting trench complete!
A big thank you to those that gave up their precious time this morning, at very short notice, to help complete the trench work before lockdown returns later this week. Also, thanks again to those that volunteered last week, and especially those that did both. Your efforts have helped us save a significant amount of funds in not having to pay someone to do the work. It was hard, muddy and wet work but it is now virtually complete and ready for the electrician to connect the lights to give us permanent "neighbour friendly" lighting to the bottom of the field for outdoor scouting activities. All that remains is a little landscaping and some grass seed in the spring.
The lighting will also be very useful when we can return to some sort of normality and have a social event for all (or two) next year. Looking forward to it!
