A cub pack from Boston has attracted much praise after members took part in a town litter pick.
The 5th Boston (St Botolphs) pack took part in the clean-up for part of their Community Impact and World Challenge badges. Parents were invited to join in, and leant a helping hand.
The cubs met at the Norfolk Street entrance to Central Park, split into small groups, and slowly walked back to their HQ on Castle Street, covering as many of the side streets as they could.
Akela, Jayne Maddy, said “During the pick, all of our groups said that some members of the public stopped and said thank you to them, and congratulated them for doing it, which was a lovely boost.
“The cubs were very surprised at the amount of rubbish they collected in just over an hour, and were horrified at the amount of cigarette ends that were chucked in the gutters. I don’t think we have any future smokers in our cub pack!”
A Facebook post about their endeavours attracted a host of “well done” messages, with many shaming litter louts and expressing sadness that picking litter up from the streets should be necessary.
