1 day left to help get a new Scout hut

Just 24 hrs left on this Crowdfunder Campaign. The aim is to build a new purpose built Scout Hut on our own new site in 2021 – to celebrate the Scout Group’s 50th Anniversary.
The Crowdfunder says:

2nd Bude (Jacobstow) Scout Group is a thriving Cornish Scout Group supporting young people from 6 to 14 years old from a predominantly rural and coastal community that sits between Launceston, Camelford and Bude.  The Group is thriving with over 50 young people and, despite COVID 19, it restarted its weekly meetings in September and is now exploring Zoom meetings.

The Scouts Vision is that by 2023 we will have prepared more young people with skills for life, supported by amazing leaders delivering an inspiring programme.

We will be growing, more inclusive, shaped by young people and making a bigger impact in our communities.

What is happening?

The Group is 50 years old in 2021, and had been based in an old school pre-fabricated hut at Wainhouse Corner for the last 38 years.  The Group had to vacate this site and the old hut was beyond being moved.  On hearing of the Group’s predicament local farmers Jonathan and Sally Bachelor kindly gifted the Group a plot of land just 700 metres from the old site at Wainhhouse Corner.  With the support of St Gennys Parish Council, Mr Michael Prellar (architect)(RIP) and local residents the Group secured outline planning for the hut on the new site.  With support of Stephen’s Scown solicitors the Group have now secured legal tenure of the site.

Fundraising is progressing well, with support from local businesses and Parish Councils. Several grant applications have been submitted.  The site has been landscaped and work on the foundations should start in May.
Exciting times as we come out of lockdown – let’s make 2021 a special 50th Anniversary for the Group.
