Staff at The Royal Star & Garter Home in High Wycombe have helped clean up a
stretch of the Hughenden Stream as part of a community project.
They donned wellies to pick out bottles, crisp packets, cigarette ends and other
rubbish from the part of the stream running behind the new care home, which
will welcome its first residents this month (April).

Chiltern Rangers engaged with 192 young people and 70 adult volunteers who contributed 876 hours of volunteering on sites in the North West Chilterns. Many of the schools/youth organisations and families we worked with were new to Chiltern Rangers.
At the end of these sessions Chiltern Rangers engaged with 157 young people and 90 adult volunteers who contributed 371 hours of volunteering on four sites in the South West Chilterns. We worked with two schools new to Chiltern Rangers as well as Bucks Young Carers and are grateful for the support of the Woodland Trust, BBOWT and Lord Parmoor.
