Beaver Scouts from 4th Beaconsfield took part in a litter pick to keep their communities tidy.

The children, aged between six and eight, spent just over an hour using equipment supplied by Beaconsfield Town Council, and managed to fill up three bags worth of rubbish, which included plastic bottles, sweet and food wrappers, drink cans, newspapers as well as pieces of cardboard.

The activity will go towards their community impact, my adventure challenge and my world challenge badges.

Parent, Natalie Conaghan, said: “Beavers provides our children with great life skills.

“The children grow in confidence, they are active, they have fun and learn about the importance of friendship and they get to know about the local community.

Beaver Scout, Jaydon Pottinger, added: “I really enjoyed doing the litter pick and working hard at it.

“It’s really important for the environment and so that animals in the local area don’t get sick eating the rubbish.”

Adult volunteer, Sean O’Farrell, said: “This is always a popular event and it’s a great way of teaching the children to look after the environment.”
