The Activity Centre of Holy Cross, Greenford Scouts, Guides, Brownies, Cub Scouts, Rainbows & Beavers 


Kantar Worldpanel, based in Park Royal, West London generously arranged to send seven of their employees to Brambles for the day to help  maintain our scout & guide Outdoor Activity Centre.  This is the fourth occasion that they have supported us.
'The Magnificent 7' arrived at 9.30am ready to help. Somehow their visit coincided with a late summer heatwave & the day was gloriously warm - to say the least!  In rising temperatures, grass was mowed, a shed was painted,  undergrowth was cleared and wood collected from around the site which was added to the ever growing camp fire wood pile.  At lunch time everyone had a well earned rest in the shade, taking part in a picnic on the grass.  The work party concluded with the planting of a beech tree that replaced a recently felled elm.  A huge amount of work was enthusiastically carried out by the group and they are more than welcome to join us again next year.  Their contribution is very much appreciated.
