Scouts in Hexham have benefited from the generosity of a customer of a Hexham automotive business.

SV Auto and Machinery ran a competition for one lucky customer to win a Bosch Rotak 37 lawnmower, with Mike Williams the recipient.

However, having seen a comment from somebody representing the 1st Hexham Scouts Group who needed a new mower, Mr Williams asked for the machine to go to the group instead.
