We are aiming to create a community space that will house our Scout group head quarters, water sports centre, community and conference space. We love to give young people and adults opportunities to develop their life skills, to make life long friends and to go on adventures.
We have been very lucky to have been awarded a Community Asset Transfer of the Ice House in The Royal Harbour, Ramsgate and we need your help to renovate it. We have to manage an asbestos roof, years of salt water corrosion on the brick face and fire damage needs to be repaired inside, the whole building needs replumbing and rewiring and although as scouts we have a reputation of using a lot of shoe laces and duck tape to mend and repair things this time we need a lot more than that.
As you can see from this photo:
Our vision is to provide fully accessible water and land based activities using the Ice House as our base. We hope to build a headquarters to support scouting for the next hundred years or more.
As Sea Scouts we help to train and encourage young people to take an active part in their communities and our scouts go on to become Lifeboat men and women, to join the Navy, to be part of the Carpet Guard for the Chelsea Pensioners during the Remembrance Festival at the Royal Albert Hall, to be kind, considerate and well rounded adults. With your help we can continue to provide this support for generations to come.
