On the first Saturday of the month 1st Bilsthorpe Scout Group collects papers from the communities door steps to help raise funds for there group.

The group sell the papers onto a shredding company that make bedding out of them for race horses at Southwell racecourse.  

If you are a newspaper reader and wish to help support this event please leave your newspapers at the end of your drive (in a plastic bag or tied up with string) on the given dates for us to come around and collect them.

We tend to have a team of volunteers that collect these papers for the group between 10am and 2pm which fits in with their other weekend activities.
