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.
- 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.
