What has been happening in East Lothian

Out and About

1st Belhaven Guides were out and about recently, learning how to turf and light a fire. Some of the girls had not even struck a match before. They used dry materials from the garden and twigs from the woods. Once the two fires were burning well they toasted marshmallows, another first for some.
Afterwards, the fires were doused, the unburnt sticks removed and the turf replaced leaving no traces. It was worth the smell of woodsmoke (which  was pretty strong!) to be able to add this to everyones skills list.
