Eager beavers attached to the 1st Nuthall Scout group have taken part in an arts and crafts initiative to make special badges.

Assistant beaver leader Simon Wright led the buildings of the future project which challenged the youngsters to make models of buildings created from discarded items such as boxes, bottles, newspapers and cartons.

Mr Wright said: “The aim of the projects to get the beavers to use their artistic talents, creativity and artistry. To make something out of the ordinary.”

Cllr Philip Owen recently presented the Scout group with a cheque for £1,000.
