WATER lot of improvements... Staff from Severn Trent Water’s customer relations department stepped in to offer Eckington Scouts a hand following a troublesome bout of leaks last year.

More than £1,500 was donated towards a clear-up day, which managers also attended to help cut back trees, trim hedges and give the Scout hut a fresh lick of paint.

Scout leader Sheila Wright said: “We would like to thank everyone for all the hard work they put in. There is still some work needed, but this has helped a lot and we are grateful.”

Penny Brown, for Severn Trent, said: “The Scouts had a hard time last year after a number of leaks on the property and we wanted to show our support.”
