We had out grown our old space and had waiting lists in all sections. A larger Scout HQ has allowed us to reduce waiting lists because we can now fit more young people in! We are also able to improve the quality of things we can do in a meeting. We now have a larger kitchen, our old one could only fit 3 or 4 people in at a time. We also now have a second smaller meeting room. This allows us to work with smaller groups and run different activities simultaneously, whatever the weather.

We still need to raise another £15,000.
Thanks to a lot of hard work, the generosity of the community, various grants and a private loan we have raised £115,000. This has enabled us to go ahead and build our extension, but we still need to raise £15,000 to repay the loan.
