Mary joined Neville Tomkins, Chief Commissioner Scouts Australia, ACT Branch, recently in turning the first sod for the rebuilding of Stromlo Forest Scout Hall in Duffy that was destroyed in the 2003 Canberra bushfires.

“The rebuilding of the Hall represents yet another important step forward for both the community and Canberra’s strong scouting movement, both of which were setback with the loss of the Hall,” Mary said.

Mary also presented a cheque for $5,000 on behalf of the ACT Government in support of the Scouts Gala Benefit Dinner and Auction which Mary will attend.
