A team of youngsters from the 2nd Carlton Colville scout group recently spent their Saturday morning working on a local nature reserve.
A total of 18 boys and girls took part in the sponsored project at Carlton Marshes, which also helped to raise funds for the Suffolk Wildlife Trust.
Steve Hart, one of the Scout section assistants, said: 'The scouts were working towards their Teamwork Challenge badge and their
Community Impact activity badge. Their task was to collect, cut up and burn branches from hedging – as well as to clear grass from the edges of access pathways for the disabled.
'As the Suffolk Wildlife Trust are trying to raise funds to buy the adjacent marshland we decided to turn our work morning into a sponsored event and by doing so we hope to raise more than £100 for the trust. Everyone really enjoyed working on the marshes and doing their bit to help the community.'
