Our HQ was built in the early 1960's by skilled members of the Group. We are very lucky to be situated in the woods by Riddlesdown School (the White Path). Several years ago we started an extensive refurbishment plan and have tracked our progress so far.....
In 2017 we converted one of our storage rooms into a fully equipped kitchen including a fridge/freezer, 2 ovens and 2 hobs
In 2018 we completely refurbished our toilets and converted our old kitchen into an accessible to all toilet and shower room
A very generous benefactor left us a legacy in their will and we used these funds to replace the old doors and windows
This was one of the biggest projects we have undertaken so far... Thanks to a grant from The National Lottery the roof was sealed and fully insulated
We are so lucky to have wonderful woodland surrounding our hut and over the Summer our superb team of volunteer groundsmen have been transforming this area. Cutting back brambles, building new seating and climbing areas. Replacing rotten steps and most importantly cutting down dead/rotten trees so the grounds area safe place for our Young People
Our large HQ was built in the 60's and sadly due to a leaking roof suffered severe damage to both ceilings in our 2 halls. Thanks to Paul O'Brien, Director of O'Brien Contracts Ltd the hut has been transformed over the Summer with fully insulated and boarded ceilings.
Also thanks to Karl Hancock, Director of KH Decorating who painted all the ceilings, walls and woodwork in the hut.
Our future plans include new garage, new cupboards, re-varnished floors and much more...
