On Sunday 16th October a group of our Scouts, Leaders and parents helped the Milton Keynes Branch of the Inland Waterways Association with a clean up of the Grand Union Canal. Following a health and safety briefing we were equipped with grappling hooks and went “fishing” for treasure. Our haul included: two motorbikes, two push bikes, a wheel chair (only 3 wheels!), a car battery, a ladder, a sign post, numerous bits of metal, poles, and what looked like a pair of Trevor’s old pants!…..
The Scouts were rewarded at the end of the session with cake and biscuits, and a trip back to the start on a narrow boat. Their hard work will also go towards the requirements of their Community Challenge Award badge. We would like to thank the IWA for the opportunity to help out, and look forward to the next time.
