Scouts Community Garden

During the first week of June the three Scout Groups of Littlehampton 4th, 5th & 7th joined Scouts from all over the UK to make a positive difference to their local community. Over four nights we built from a patch of wasteland a beautiful sustainable garden to be enjoyed by all.
Day One
A barren piece of unused land kindly donated by Littlehampton Town Council
Day Two
Explorers start the hard work of preparing the plot ready for planting
Day Three
The plants start to arrive all of which have been very kindly donated by local businesses
Day Four
Trowels and spades at the ready, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts come together for the "Big Plant"
Day Four
Work progressing nicely and it's starting to take shape
The finished garden with a back drop of evergreen shrubs and a red, white and blue border to mark 70 years since D Day and 100 years from the start of World War One
"The Promise Garden" is complete after so much hard work from everybody and the generous donations of local plant suppliers
Official Opening
Town Mayor Jill Long is joined by a member of each of the three groups to open the "Promise Garden"

Had a great Cub Camp here a couple of weeks ago. Facilities good although outdoor space needs a bit of a tidy. Excellent location for sea front activities.

We had a great stay in August, finding the facilities to be of a good standard and well priced. However, it'd've been useful to have a list of kitchen ware.
