Over the last couple of years, Stroud Valley Scouting Group Committee has been looking at the future of the group and in particular the building currently occupying our site in Chapel Lane.
The existing building is a prefabricated concrete and asbestos structure and has served its users well, but as with all these building types they become more difficult and more expensive to maintain.
To secure the longevity of the site and to enable its use to continue as a Scouting Centre and community space we have begun the process of trying to secure funding for a new building.
Through a successful grant application we were able to engage a local firm of Architects to develop a design that would satisfy the current user base and allow us to expand the space to serve a wider, more diverse number of organisations and users.
Having now successfully gained planning permission for the new centre we have begun the process of trying to secure funding for the building to begin.
The new centre will be lighter, healthier, fully accessible and very energy efficient. Our users will have an inspiring space to enjoy for many years to come.
Please help kick-start our fundraising by pledging your support.
