During February, intrepid Beavers from Willow and Alder Colonies of 6th Fleet Ancells Farm pack ventured out into Ancells Farm playing fields to carry out a litter picking challenge, supported by Serco who loaned high visibility vests, grabbers and protective gloves for the event.
Divided into teams, the Beavers took turns to scour the field and retrieve as much litter as they could before darkness fell. White Lodge proved the winners with a huge bag full of litter, followed very closely by the other teams. Each of the Beavers took up their challenge with great enthusiasm and energy.
In taking part in this litter picking exercise the Beavers met one of the criteria for their Environment Award Badge. The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts in the Group have been working together in partnership towards this badge since January of last year and it was awarded to all of those who have completed the Badge criteria at their AGM on Friday 4th March 2011.
Friends of Ancells Farm would like to thank the Beavers for their efforts in helping to keep the park clean and look forward to working with 6th Fleet Ancells Farm pack in the future.
