THE completion of a Scouts Community Project undertaken by the 1st Arbory Scout Troop was heralded by the unveiling of a brass plaque by Community, Culture and Leisure Minister Graham Cregeen MHK.

The Scouts rubbed down and painted the Colby railway station in the traditional colours of green and cream; paint and supplies was provided by B&Q and the government’s transport division.

The work took three weeks with each scout doing their share of the work.

The scouts had a fun time doing the work and got covered in a lot of paint themselves while wearing their protective gloves and overalls.

As many of the Scouts hadn’t ever done a spot of painting before, their results were very commendable and a credit to the challenge, and earned them their Community Challenge Badge.

Thanks went to all who supported the Arbory Scouts and to Mr Cregeen for unveiling the plaque.

The painting team included: James Holmes, Mark Fullerton, Alex Hextall, Cameron Byrne, Eden Ludgate, Joshua Moore, Craig Morris, Cameron Ledingham, Robert Skelding and Lukas Heyhurst.
