Dozens of beavers, cubs and scouts from across Ely have been helping out in their local communities this week as part of Scouting’s Community Work Week.

The event which sees young people volunteering on projects in their local area is an annual event run by the Scout Association to help to raise awareness of Scouting.

Ely’s Explorer Scouts, aged from 14-18, helped to clean the Stretham Old Engine ready for a film crew turning up the following weekend, whilst Scouts from Ely worked together with students from Highfields School to improve the sensory garden on the site.

Scout leader Caroline Spaxman, said: “It was brilliant to see the scouts and the students from Highfields working together and enjoying each other’s company.

“The work they did will really improve the sensory garden and we are hoping to maintain a link between the scout troops in Ely and Highfields school with other projects in the future.”
