Beavering Away

Forth Valley Royal Hospital had a special visit recently from the 93rd Braes Scout Group Beavers, who came along to earn their Environment Partnership Award.

The youngsters were taken on a tour of the recycling areas by the facilities management company Serco who sponsor the badge. The award is all about encouraging young people to take pride in keeping their neighbourhood clean and safe, whilst taking care of the environment at the same time. The badge is given to those who have taken part in a community clean up campaign and shown initiative in recycling the materials collected.

Serco Project Manager Tom McEwan, who conducted the tour, said: “We were delighted with the interest the Beavers showed in the ‘robots’ and the recycling work carried out at the hospital. It’s great to see the young people from the community getting involved in their local environment.”
