Busy clearing away rubbish from around their headquarters in Huddersfield Road, Meltham, are these cubs from 5th Holme Valley (Meltham) Scout Group. Some 30 cubs got together to clear the area of rubble and other debris – left when an extension was built for the headquarters. In a fortnight they will be planting shrubs and plants which they hope people will give. 26th April 1986.
