Beavers and Cubs from the 2nd Boston Scout Group have helped to keep their community clean after embarking on litter picking sessions over the past few weeks.
The two groups took to the neighbouring streets in the Skirbeck area, particularly focusing near the Focus One Centre for the activity, organised by the group with group scout leader, Mike Rowlatt, managing the overall running of the project with safety equipment provided by Boston Borough Council and the local Fly-tipping Watch Group.
In doing something for their area and fellow residents, they were praised by the council’s environmental supervisor, Jenny Moore who was pleased to be able to pass on her gratitude to the group.
During the litter pick, a number of residents said how good it was to see young people out and about doing something positive.
Mr Rowlatt, group leader, said: “The youngsters were very enthusiastic litter pickers and really got stuck into this activity, collecting a surprising amount of litter.”
After each session the young people went back to the FocusOne Centre for a discussion on the importance of looking after the environment and the roles everyone has to protect it.
The group leader also said that they would love to take part in any environmental projects that the council look to undertake in the future and cannot wait to hear more from Jenny soon.
If you have young children or know anyone who may be interested in joining them they meet on Mondays (Beavers) and Fridays (Cubs) between 6.30pm and 8pm, both sessions are held at the FocusOne Centre. Please contact Michael by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
