Led by their Area Manager Richard Ball, who is also the District Explorer Scout Commissioner for Exeter, they were there to give the scouts a helping hand by giving the interior of the cottage and the toilet block at the site a much needed coat of paint. As a result the facilities, that are used by both local scout groups and those from around the country, are now in tip top shape for their next visitors.
Commenting on their experience, Richard Ball, NatWest's Area Private Banking Manager for West Devon and Cornwall, said: "It was hard work but we had a great time and a lot of laughs along the way. It's very important to us as a team that we are part of, and contribute fully to, the local community in which we all live and work. As a result being able to do something like this for a local Group in need of some help, in addition to all the work we do to assist local clients, was fantastic and we have all taken away a great feeling of achievement."
Alex Spry, Caddihoe Campsite Warden from Devon County Scouts said: "It was great that NatWest were able to step in and help us out - particularly at this time of year when we are all really busy out here trying to run the site day to day; added to which the work undertaken was completed to a very high standard as would be expected from any group offering their services to us at Caddihoe Scout Campsite. Well done to all and we hope they can return again soon!"
