Our team ranges from 6 years old to over 70 years old. For over 15 years we have all made suggestions and fund raised to buy land and build a Scout Community hall.
In 2019 we have a community hall but step outside into an acre of mud and un-kept field.
Our vision is that the field will become an extension of the hall offering the chance to learn, gain skills and have fun.
Imagine a six year old who can sit and watch a butterfly during the day, see the stars at night and maybe even sleep under canvas without moving from the spot. Or just sit and listen to birdsong or nightlife.
The disabled who can camp with the knowledge that they have the facilities in the hall if there is a problem.
A whole family who can come and enjoy a day out of doors either playing, learning about the wild life or maybe helping with the upkeep.
Not forgetting the 120 scouts aged 6 to 18 years who will be there 4 nights a week a week have fun learning skills for life and volunteering in the community.
Or maybe several generations coming along to enjoy a BBQ and get to know their neighbours
Any money raised will make it possible for all ages and abilities to step out of the hall onto decking and then onto a grassed area. Making the above activities a reality. Any extra funds will mean that hedging and fences can be put in place to enclose it and make it safe for the smallest child.
