Bradford on Avon Beavers dig in to help at care home

Bradford on Avon Beavers were busy planting away at Wiltshire Heights Care Home on Tuesday as part of Scout Community Week.

Twenty two members created a flower bed of edible plants, including marigolds and nasturtiums, after planting the seeds in a pot several weeks ago and nurturing them at home.

Sarah Howe, assistant Beaver leader, said: “Some found the weeding a bit tiresome, but once they got into the planting they were very interested and did a good job.

“We’re always looking for community things we can do and there is a need for more beaver leaders.”
