Gardening Scouts get new green badge

Robert Woodhead Limited responded to a call for help from the 1st Edwinstowe Scout Group.  The local youngsters needed to get up to 15 hours hands on experience to complete their Environmental Group Badge and the Small Holding Badges.  Robert Woodhead staff and Scout Leaders were on hand to help ten scouts get to grips with landscaping, pruning and clearing shrubbery.

Scout Leader Ang Hallam, commented “It was fantastic to be able to use Robert Woodhead’s facilities at Edwinstowe House to help give the Scouts the hands on experience they needed to complete the badges.  Everyone had a brilliant day, the weather was great and the Scouts are looking forward to coming back to tackle the pond!”

Robert Woodhead is committed to giving young people the opportunities and skills to succeed.  This includes local schools, colleges, universities and other organisations such as The Scouts.   Teresa Westwood, HR Manger added “it is important to recognise that developing skills is about a wide range of activities.  We are currently working with a number of community organisations to offer site visits, hands on experience days and structured work experience.”
