Scouts litter pick for campaign

Clean for the Queen was a national event that towns all across the country were encouraged to join.

The litter pick was also supported by local firm Bakkavor where staff members took part in the litter pick over three days. This was yet another example of groups in the community joining together to enhance the towns amenities.

The group litter picked in the Wellhead, The Memorial Garden and the South Street car park.

The group spent a couple of hours in the morning doing the litter pick.

Just over 20 adults and young people supported by three leaders took part in the litter pick.

The promised rain held off until about 11.30am when the heavens opened. Fortunately the litter pick had been completed when this happened so the young people and adults were able to return to Shippon Barn for refreshments.

Teas, coffees and juice were provided by the group and we were pleased to be able to provide hot sausage rolls to all of the volunteers.

These were purchased from Burtons of Bourne who were kind enough to give the group a discount on the cost.

The group is grateful to Burtons for this generous gesture.

The volunteers collected 10 black bags of rubbish. The fact there were not more is a credit to the grounds staff at the Wellhead/Memorial Gardens who do such a good job in keeping the environment clean and tidy throughout the year.

The group will be litter picking again later in the year at the Bourne Festival and for Bourne in Bloom and have purchased their own litter pickers so that we can litter pick without needing to borrow equipment.
