Working towards their Castle Saunderson Peace Award, the Beavers and Cubs of the 21st Meath decided to do a community cleanup. 49 scouts, numerous leaders as well as friends and families assisted in cleaning up the majority of the village of Kentstown in County Meath, Ireland. The cleanup took two hours on Sunday 27th April and with the weather being glorious, the scouts gave up their time and took great pride in tidying up not only the village, but the estates and green areas that they live and play in.
As a service to the Castle Saunderson site, a 4ft X 2ft board was decorated and designed by the scouts themselves based on our cleanup project. On the back of the board each scout that took part placed their names and hand print. The fact that this board will be placed on a container at Castle Saunderson and will stay there forever visible to other scout groups is a great privilege.
As 21st Meath is a new scout group, freshly formed within the last year. Castle Saunderson will be the first official scout event that the group will attend, and history is being made for Kentstown and for each of these scouts. The excitement and anticipation of each of these scouts is a joy to behold.
