Scout Explorer Jessica Greasby helped Buckingham Canal Society (BCS) volunteers continue their restoration project at Cosgrove.

Jessica, aged 14, and Milton Keynes Scout Explorer leader Rex joined work party organiser Athina Beckett and volunteers to remove branches and twigs currently filling the canal at the site. This will later allow for the re-watering of the canal section.

Later in the day, Jessica helped to uncover the brickwork of an old bridge which is currently covered with shrubbery. Work is being carried out to see what remains of the bridge. If over 50 per cent is still in place, BCS will be able to apply for a heritage grant to restore it.
