Steve helps cleaning at Perivale Scouts working party

What better way to spend a soaking wet Sunday morning than at the 3rd Perivale Scout HQ in Perivale with Cllr. Tariq Mahmood, many local volunteers (including Maria from Selborne School !) and the top team from Amey who carted away all the rubbish we cleared from the site.

A real old Scouts working party that certainly took me back and nearly took me to casualty when the aches and pains kicked in on Monday morning!

Volunteers from McDonalds at the Target Roundabout and Ruislip branches also helped out and we were extremely grateful for all the help from Mr. Patel of Patel’s News in Greenford but the distinguished service medal has to go to Nick Shellis from Shellis Roofing who managed to re-roof the storage shed despite the driving rain. I feared for his safety as he clambered over the roof but all was well and a very large number of Scouts with First Aid proficiency badges were anxiously standing by!

Very grateful indeed to Suzy and all from McDonalds Westway Cross for nor only putting in a good shift but supplying the burger buns as well!

Probably more fun to look back on than to have experienced but if we were chilled to the bone we did all have the warm glow of satisfied achievement to console us.
