Youngsters from the 3rd Boston (Fishtoft) and 7th Boston (Swineshead) got together for the events over one weekend this month.
Five bags of rubbish were collected on a litter pick to Fisthoft’s Pilgrim Fathers Memorial with the children using equipment borrowed from Boston Borough Council through its Big Boston Clean-Up campaign.
The Beavers walked 1.3 miles from the Fishtoft Scout Hut to the memorial, collecting as much litter as they safely could en route, before taking a break and then making the return journey. The session meant they ticked off requirements to at least six badges.
The non-sleeper then saw the youngsters stay awake as late as possible that night – 3.30am for some, in the end.
Both events were sponsored and helped raise funds towards a trip to Gilwell Park – Scouts UK’s headquarters – in Essex.
