Peebles Scout replacement hall project


We aim to include a space that can facilitate outdoor activities. Our venue is used nightly by the Scout Group. These improvements will open up our group to more young people allowing us to cater more effectively for, and create a more welcoming accessible venue to, those with disabilities.

Our goals:

  • Create opportunities to expose the Young People to a greater range of activities and experiences than the current facility affords. The benefit would be felt immediately by the current 166 strong membership,
  • Peebles Scout Group is a much loved contributor to the Peebles Community. The Group provides a challenging programme to its young people aged 6-18, with an emphasis on emotional and educational development promoting social responsibility
  • The facility would be once again attractive to the wider Community and would be available for Community activities.

How we will achieve our goals

Following complete improvement of our Hall facilities we are now fundraising to improve our grounds and accessibility, aiming to deliver :- • Excavation and preparation of suitably levelled grounds to incorporate provision of • Disabled access ramp • Disabled parking • Remaining ground covering to be finished using chip materials

Where the money will go

These improvements in place we would also be benefiting our community as a whole – allowing a greater number of community groups to make use of a fully accessible space in the town.

    Such a lot of work has gone on by many volunteers over many years – this could be the final step in a long journey.

    Peebles will benefit massively from a new Scout hall. The old hall badly needed replacing and scouting groups in the future will have a great experience with new facilities.

    Peebles Scouts / Cubs and Beavers are driven by a team of committed volunteers and the children have great opportunities which the new hut and full access will enhance.
