Galway Scouts – County Challenge

Well done to those Scouts who attended the Galway Scouts – County Challenge day on Sunday 21st February.  Although the day was wet and windy, 117 Scouts from all over County Galway turned up to participate. Scouts were provided with 10 Clues, a map of the City and a time limit of two hours to locate as many of the locations as possible. Each location had an activity base at which the Scouts undertook various activities. They were marked on various attributes with those teams scoring highest across all bases award the County Challenge Trophy.



Beaver Bulb Planting

On Saturday January 23rd the 19th Galway Athenry Beavers, Scouts and Friends in conjunction  with the Athenry Tidy Town committee worked very hard in planting over 500 flowering bulbs along the roads entering the town.

During the day the Beavers learned all about the aims of the Athenry Tidy Town Committe, the very hard work they perform and how they are working very hard in changing Athenry for the better for all the people that live in Athenry and visit our town. The Beavers had a great time meeting the Tidy Town Committee learning their names and having some fun. Full set of photographs.

A big thank you to Woodies, Wellpark, Galway for supplying the bulbs.
