Angmering Scouts, Guides, Brownies and Rainbows
On Tuesday 24 June, a second group of Brownies carried out surveys in St Margaret's Churchyard.
On Thursday 12 June, The Rainbows, Brownies and Guides carried out surveys in St Margaret's Churchyard. This included identifying and measuring the different trees, looking for minibeasts, wildlife and lichen. The girls were very enthusiastic and particularly loved collecting and identifying minibeasts.
A new flower bed has been created on the corner of Lansdowne Road and Arundel Road. The Scouts were asked to come up with a design and plants for this bed. The plants chosen had significance to WW1, like Rosemary for Rememberance and most were grown from seed
On Tuesday, 11 March, it was a great pleasure for us to be joined by the Brownies, ages 7 - 10, their Leader Mel Farrow and some of the parents, in St Margaret's churchyard, Angmering. They were helping us in our horticultural efforts to plant snowdrops and primroses along one of the walls and under a tree in the churchyard. Mel Farrow said that the girls had a lovely time and they particularly enjoyed having their own primroses to plant.
On Thursday, 20 March, we were planting again, with the Rainbows, ages 4 - 7, their Leader Gill Cox and a couple of Mums. The little ones found it hard to dig but with a little help they managed to plant their primroses and snowdrops.
We hope their snowdrops will look amazing next spring. The girls will be going back into the churchyard to carry out various surveys of plants and wild habitats.
AIB have been in discussion with Scout Leader Martin Jarvis and it has been agreed that the Scouts will design and plant a new flower bed in the Village. It has been decided that the new bed will be on the corner of Lansdowne Road and Arundel Road.
The possibility of building a “bug hotel” and even involving a local beekeeper is also being looked into.
