SCOUTS and leaders from 4th Potters Bar spent a cold weekend learning about woodland management with Well End Scout Activity Centre warden Brian Templeman.

During the course of the weekend, scouts planted hawthorn, ash and pine saplings, coppiced hazel trees and fenced off newly coppiced hazels to protect them from rabbit damage.

Scout leader Richard Waterhouse said: "We use the Well End centre all year round, so this is one way the scouts ensure that the centre is maintained for future scout use.

"The work they have done here will go towards their naturalists badge and help the scouts who will be attending the Tolmers forestry course in the new year.
