£174,210 raised to date… now for the final push!

The Appeal has raised funds of £174,210 and promissory notes valued at £35,000 so we are getting ever closer to the day when work can start constructing the new Community Centre. A lottery grant has been applied for, but the Lottery don’t generally grant funds to Scout Groups , so we need all the help from kind donors that we can beg.
The Centre will be constructed over two stages, with a contractor constructing the shell building and services, then the second phase will be to complete the internal fit-out. The internal fit-out will be mostly completed by volunteer trades and unskilled labour using mostly donated materials.
If there is anything that you feel that you can do to help, whether a cash donation or a promise of materials or labour, please contact David Malkin via
The Scout Community Centre will be a tremendous asset for our village, but we’ve still got a lot of work to do and we need all the help that we can get.
