Bromsgrove Scouts head to Tardebigge to help with Lime Kilns conservation project

MEMBERS of the Worcester-Birmingham and Droitwich Canals Society arranged for the Bromsgrove Scouts to visit the Tardebigge Lime Kilns to learn about the area and take part in the conservation project.

A group of 17 scouts, along with leader Phil Dolphin, paid the area a visit at the end of last month and took part in several tasks.

Among them were cleaning the stream bed of silt, cleaning bottles recovered from previous excavations, clearing rubbish from the bank and removing metal, brick and glass.

The young people also removed weeds from the tug boat compound, helped strategically place logs to create a bug and funghi gardens and took part in a quiz.

Bill Lambert, who is leading a team of volunteers to renovate the Tardebigge Lime Kilns, organised the trip for the scouts.

He said: “We were very pleased – everybody seemed to enjoy the day and we were grateful to the scouting group for joining us and contributing in the way they did.”
