BEAVERS, cubs and scouts from Falfield have helped to keep their community clean after embarking on a litter pick around the village.

The group from the First Falfield Scout Group took to the streets on October 5 for the activity, organised alongside Falfield Parish Council and South Gloucestershire Council, who provided safety equipment.

In doing something for their area and fellow villagers, they hope to use it as part of their community impact award.

During the litter pick, a number of residents said how good it was to see young people out and about doing something positive.

Arnold Tucker, group scout leader, said: “The youngsters were very enthusiastic litter pickers and really got stuck into this activity, collecting a surprising amount of litter.”

After the litter pick all the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts went back to the Scout Hall to enjoy a hotdog and a warm drink.

Parish councillor Megan O’Connor who came along to thank the youngster on behalf of Falfield Parish council said she was amazed by the number who had taken part and that Falfield is incredible fortunate to have such a successful group in the village.
