Melrose Scouts, Cubs and Beavers joined in the Great Borders River Clean last Sunday and helped collect litter outside Melrose.

More than 100kg of rubbish was recovered, including wheel hubs, a scooter, carpet and a rusty shopping trolley.

This was a fund-raiser for the Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team.

The Great Borders River Clean was organised by Tom Rawson, a teacher from St Mary’s School in Melrose, and involved organised litter-picking at over 20 locations throughout the River Tweed and its tributaries.
