Scout group needs help to get their new hut up and running.
ILFRACOMBE scouts are hoping local businesses can do them a good deed so they can move into their new home.
When the 1st Ilfracombe Scouts hut in Bradwell Lane was condemned due to structural problems, Reverend Robert Harris kindly offered them the use of an outbuilding at St Brannocks Vicarage.
The Bradwell Lane building was recently sold at auction, after being the scout’s home since the 1950s.
But the new premises also need work and while the scouts and volunteers have done their best to clear and decorate, they need materials too.
At the moment the floorboards are bare and the group is appealing to any businesses that could donate 100 square metres of hardboard underlay for the floor, as well as the same amount of hard-wearing carpet tiles or carpet, in a ‘dirt friendly’ colour.
The Scouts also need some form of cost efficient electric heating system and some curtains or blinds for the windows.
Any business which might be able to help are asked to contact Group Scout Leader, James Currie-Cathey on 07775 303320 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
