SIXTEEN Presteigne Cub Scouts went to the Warden in the town to put up three bird boxes they had made. Another three made by the cubs and a large owl box donated by a local resident had already been put up in the area. The Cubs made the boxes as part of their global challenge and conservation badges. They were taken around the Warden by David Camplin who is the Warden Guardian Foundation co coordinator. While the Cubs were there David a former Scout and Scout leader originally from Hampshire talked to the children and their leaders about Presteigne's historical Warden site, and helped them find places to put up the boxes. The bird boxes will hopefully attract small birds including tree creepers, sparrows, finches, blue tits and robins. The Cubs also tidied up the area around the trees they had planted in the Warden for the Scouts Centenary in 2007. The Warden is now one of the places to visit on a list of interesting places near the Offa's Dyke path and a new bench has recently been installed that was donated by the Offa's Dyke Association.
