First Luton Sea Scouts - Sanitary Block
We are in need of a washroom and toilet block in order to provide basic sanitary facilities at our lakeside location. Existing facilities are inadequate and often had to be hired in. A sanitary block will greatly benefit the Group members as well as the many Scout Groups and Leader trainees to their oversubscribed water activity and training days
- Providing basic sanitary facilities fit for purpose. Existing facilities are temporary and far from adequate, considering activities involve cold and unhygienic lake water and young participants.
- Meeting Health and Safety guideline. There are currently no provisions for hot water at the site. With participants as young as 6, we have a duty of care to make sure there is sufficient cleaning facilities with running hot water.
- Creating a nicer environment and improving hygiene standards Having a permanent sanitary block in situ will provide a facility necessary for the activity and training days that the Group offers to its members.

How we will achieve our goals
The Community Award will certainly help expedite the project. The Group have been trying to raise funds for years and many discussions have been held and halted due to insufficient funds. It has come to a point where a proper sanitary block becomes a requirement rather than an enhancement due to the popularity of the activities on offer.
Where the money will go
1st Luton Sea Scouts is a very popular Scout Group with young people travelling from as far as Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire to become members and participants. The project will make a massive difference in providing a much needed cleaning facility to the vast number of participants.
