1st Park Street Cubs go fishing for pollution

Cubs from Park Street's Birchwood pack will be raised awareness of water po

llution in their local area on Monday 19 May. The 28 boys and girls aged between 8 and 10 sprayed yellow fish on kerbs around How Wood and delivered information leaflets to homes as part of the Environment Agency's Yellow Fish scheme.

The project, to raise awareness about sources of water pollution, involves stencilling a yellow fish symbol beside drains to remind people that any waste entering them may go directly into the nearest stream, river, lake, canal or other waterway - causing pollution and killing wildlife.

Chris Holliss, Akela to the Birchwood Cub pack said "As part of a balanced programme of fun activities our cubs are encouraged to get involved in things that help the local community and also to consider wider global issues, like taking care of our environment. This project covers both of those things and it will go towards the cubs' Global Challenge and Environment Partnership badges."
