Scouts repaint Long Man of Wilmington

The iconic Long Man of Wilmington has been given a facelift by local scouts.

Scouts from Hailsham and Hellingly were among the group of volunteers who repainted the chalk figure on Saturday June 1 throughout the day.

It was organised by the 1st Hellingly Scout Group and part of the National Scout Community Week.

The painting was done in groups of scouts working in hourly shifts because they are only allowed a maximum of 40 people on the site to prevent erosion.
