DEDICATED young people, part of the 1st Skegness Scouts, got their hands dirty while preparing for a new sensory garden.

The garden is being put in at the Skegness Eco Centre for groups of people with learning difficulties which the members are doing as part of a scout Community Week initiative.

The project has been sponsored by B&Q and once completed, the garden will have lots of benches for picnics, raised beds, pots, plants to attract wildlife and more.

Recently, the scouts took part in a bag packing exercise at B&Q where they managed to raise £68 which is to be put into the sensory garden project.

“The scouts have never done something like this before and it’s quite a big challenge but I am sure lots of people will benefit from using the sensory garden,” said scout leader Sylvia Myers.

A bench was also donated by B&Q to help get them started recently.
