1st Horringer Eco-friendly Scout Hut Project

1st Horringer Scout Group are working on a low-impact Eco-Friendly hut building project utilising strawbale insulation & timber.

1st Horringer Scout Group are working on a Eco-friendly, low-impact scout hut building project. We have raised 80% funding towards the main contractor build phase. It is currently 80% complete and handed over to the group for final phases. Crucially we now need to complete flooring, install the windows and doors to make the building weather tight and useable as a meeting venue.

All monies received now are to be spent towards the building materials required to complete Phase 2. This will include; flooring material, windows / doors, external cladding, wall partitions and electrical fit out, which are estimated at £20,000 in total. 


  • Provide an Eco friendly sustainble building offering much improved space for reacreation and a meeting facility for the Scout group to thrive.
  • Enhance the village amenities by providing a much needed additional meeting place/venue for the diverse users of the Community Centre
  • Improve community cohesion and encourage youth engagement in community matters
