Community support

Funding level: £5,001 to £10,000

Description

Our project for which we applying for funding from the Aviva Community Fund is to rebuild the hut with a modern fit for purpose facility. If our application is successful it will be used to compliment other funding grants currently being applied for and money already raised by the Group by local fund raising activities.

An initial design has been produced by a local architect and has been submitted for planning application approval. From this design an initial cost estimate of approximately £250k has been produced and it is anticipated the construction will be completed within the next two years.

The Scout Group is keen to see the premises utilised to its full potential and will be actively promoting the use of the premises by the wider community. The construction and future use of the building has been designed to minimise its environmental impact. Additionally the building’s design specification ensures the operation of the premises places a low future financial and maintenance burden on the Group.
