CAMBRIDGESHIRE scouts became producers for the day when they helped on the set of a new BBC series hosted by Alan Titchmarsh.

The National Village Show is a new BBC series featuring celebrity chef, James Martin and CBBC presenter, Angelica Bell.

It celebrates the traditional village show and takes place on locations around the country. More than 30 scouts offered a helping hand to the production team at the Wimpole Hall Show this month.

Working in shifts, the scouts and explorer scouts, which consist of girls and boys aged 10 to 18, welcomed guests and members of the public to the show and helped with the organisation of competition judging, working from 6.30am to 7pm.
