2nd Cranham Cubs helping out at Brunswick Court


More than a dozen green fingered cubs got their hands dirty and helped root out unwanted weeds in the gardens of Brunswick Court sheltered housing scheme.

The 15 children of the 2nd Cranham Cub Scout Pack, based in St Luke’s Church, Front Lane, spent yesterday evening helping residents of the Brunswick Avenue based housing scheme to prepare their flower beds for the new season.

Corinne Dutch, 2nd Cranham Cub Scout Pack leader, said the children “thoroughly enjoyed working with residents” and added that they hoped their efforts would bring pleasure to residents and garden users.

Brunswick Court resident and SHOUT Forum chairman Paul Clark thanked the Cubs for their help.

“The Cub Scouts did an excellent job and as they are much younger than us they found it easier to bend over and do the weeding of the flower beds which we sometimes find difficult.

“Our thanks go to them for a job really well done.”
