What Is The HQ Renovation Project?
Fund raising is needed for renovations to the Scout HQ including replacing leaking asbestos roofing, new windows, exit doors, re-wiring, low energy lighting, disabled toilets, kitchen, internal redecoration, disabled (ramped) access to the building and essential grounds maintenance.

The Association wants to continue to fund the two Community Facilitators who were part of the Neighbourhood Challenge project in Lower Green.

They will do this by holding conversations with people at a grass roots level to listen to their stories and concerns and to hear their ideas for effecting change in their communities. This approach, which is the basis of the government backed Community Organiser programme, builds trust, respect and relationships that can be used strategically to support renewal and transformation within and by the community.
