Raise Money for Alphington Scouts The Hall of Fun and Mischief
The Alphington,Scouts came to see Radio Exe to record a message about their meeting hut which is in such a poor state of repair they're thinking about holding their night under the stars inside it! They're planning all kinds of fundraising activities to replace Alphington Scout Hut.
The scout hut is in an atrocious state. It was built by parent volunteers in the fifties and is well, let's say very much past it's sell by date.
The roof leaks, there are buckets all over the hall to catch the drips!!! We keep patching it up as best we can but we feel we are throwing good money after bad and it's time for a re-build.
Scouting offers such wonderful opportunities for our local boys and girls that it's such a shame they don't have a decent meeting place. The location is fantastic and the envy of many other Scout groups in the area as it has outside space big enough to pitch tents and have outdoor activities such as camp fires and outdoor cooking and games, which are all essential elements of Scouting.
New houses are being built at the top end of Alphington in the near future and the scout leaders anticipate the demand for Scouting will grow.
They are currently preparing plans for a new hut on the footprint of the existing one, so please let us know if you can help in anyway, by donating money, goods or services. Especially if you are a local business!!
We also need volunteer leaders to help support the growth of our group. Full training and uniform are provided. It's a wonderful hobby and great fun!
If you are able to help in any way you can contact our group scout leader by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
