Local scouts help clear footpath

A team from Brookmans Park Scouts braved the rain on Sunday to help clear the overgrown and littered footpath linking Hatfield and Welham Green.

The path, leading from Dellsome Lane to Hatfield Cemetery, had become spoilt by people dumping rubbish, including abandoned cars.

The scouts, members of 2nd Hatfield (1st Brookmans Park) group worked alongside other scouts from Hatfield, members of HRAG (Hatfield Residents' Action Group), local volunteers and councillors to clear a 3km stretch of path.

Using green bin bags, litter grabs and pruning tools, they spent almost two hours filling 25 bags with rubbish and a collecting a heap of old car parts and other junk.

A reporter was there from the Welwyn Hatfield Times and it's likely a write-up and photograph will appear in the next edition of the paper.

The scouts were taking part in the activity as part of their community service towards earning their Explorer Award.
