The 113th Burn­side Scout Group were set­ting their roots down re­cently.

They were hav­ing their 22nd an­nual plant sale re­cently in the Scout Hall, on Craw­furd Road.

Many lo­cals, new and regular, came along and se­lected from a wide ar­ray of bed­ding plants and other flo­ral de­lights.

The tombola was also a huge suc­cess for the Scouts this year.

Scout par­ents Kay and Janet or­gan­ised a won­der­ful spread in the cof­fee zone, giv­ing vis­i­tors time to think about their pur­chases and how much more they might be able to take home.

Speak­ing af­ter the event, Group Scout Leader Graeme Hamil­ton said: “This event is ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated by many peo­ple from across Burn­side and Ruther­glen ev­ery year.

“It is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to get nurs­ery-grown plants at a very rea­son­able price, and at the same time, sup­port lo­cal scout­ing.”

The group is now plan­ning a camp for young­sters from all sec­tions, aged 6 to 18, which will take place in Septem­ber at Auchengillan Out­door Cen­tre, near Blanefield.
