In celebration of their 10th Birthday all Rushcliffe Scout Groups were challenged to take on an unloved piece of land and to improve it.
Explorers, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers across Rushcliffe have risen to the challenge with some exciting projects being undertaken.
“Our young people have carried out some fabulous work around the District with some inspiring results!” says Fiona Burrows Rushcliffe District Commissioner.
“1st/2nd West Bridgford Scouts and 1st Kinoulton Scouts began our endeavours with tidying and planting gardens for elderly residents.
“We have had 1st Gotham Cubs planting flower bombs ready to explode into wildflowers, 1st Keyworth Beavers, 2nd East Leake Beavers, 1st Shelford and East Bridgford, 1st/2nd, 4th and 9th West Bridgford Cubs have been litter picking or plogging.
“In 9th West Bridgford the Beavers helped out at Ashlea and the Scouts carried out beautification.
“1st Ruddington Scouts cleared the vicinity around their scout hut and 1st Keyworth Cubs built bee homes. This is just the beginning other groups around the District are completing their projects over the next few days.”
“Our amazing leaders help build #Skillsforlife in young people around Rushcliffe. If you would like to get involved and join one of our teams please get in touch through https://www.rushcliffescouts.org.uk/
