The Beavers get ready for their bulb planting at Burnley's Scott Park.

Members of the 19th St Stephen's Beaver Scouts were in Scott Park to plant flower bulbs above one of the bowling greens.

The bulbs for the raised beds were bought with money fund raised by the group and also through subs.

While taking part in the project the children learned about plants and worms and why they matter to the environment.

The children and their leaders, James Barnett and Troy Crawford, were thanked for their fantastic efforts by Ted Dew on behalf of the Friends of Scott Park.
