Fifty-six Scouts from the St Pauls and Waddington groups and both Clitheroe and District Explorer Scout Units got involved in Scouts Community Week.

Working with The Friends of Brungerley Park, they cleared weeds and re-planted flower beds with shrubs and flowers donated by Hansons Garden Centre, at Barrow.

The hardworking Scouts and Cubs cleared more than 30 garden sacks of weeds from the flower beds and re-planted 30 flowers and shrubs.

Scouts Community Week will be an annual event in the Scouts calendar. It follows on from what used to be known as Scouts “boba-job” week, where people used to pay a shilling or 5p towards Scouts doing jobs around their community

The UK Chief Scout Bear Grylls explained: “Volunteering is at the very heart of Scouting and it’s great to see so many young people volunteering to support others and provide help where it is needed. Working together we’re going to make a huge difference to communities up and down the country.”

Commenting on the local project, District Commissioner Ian Macdonald said: “I am so proud of the difference we have made to the Brungerley Park entrance area. We plan to work with the Friends group to continue to keep the park and its surrounding area clean and tidy and hope the local community are proud of the work the Scouts have done.”
