Bags of enthusiasm for big clean-up

Have your say

Community-spirited young people were out in force picking up rubbish in Hemel Hempstead and Kings Langley at the weekend.

They were taking part in Scout Community Week, previously known as Bob-a-Job week.

The 1st Kings Langley Scouts worked with village warden George Tucker to tidy up the Village Garden and prepare the area for new flowers.

The 1st Gadebridge Beavers cleared litter from Gadebridge Park. The 1st Apsley Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and 7th Hemel Hempstead Scouts cleared rubbish from Hemel Hempstead town centre and Bunkers Park.

District scouting commissioner Russ Dyble said: “This is a perfect opportunity for our young people to get involved by putting something back into our community, and to promote Scouting as a positive activity.

“For the sake of a couple of hours’ work Hemel Hempstead town centre and open spaces are looking much tidier, and our young members have a sense of achievement.”
