WELCOME TO BARFORD SCOUTS AND GUIDES
Last updated February 2018
We now have Planning permission for both the replacement Storage Building and the Main Building. The concrete slab for the Storage bulding has been
enlarged and the building has just been erected – see photo beside this. For more detail and photos visit the STORAGE BUILDING page
WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW
We are presently generating a Specification to accompany the Planning drawings so that we can obtain realistic and comparable quotes from a number of possible suppliers.
The present building opened in 1990 and has done sterling service for 25 years but has reached the end of its useful life The roof leaks, there are no facilities for the disabled or elderly. There are now many more users and the Hut is no longer big enough or suitable/
The Hut is going to be replaced with a new building in the very near future. As this new building will be more than just a Scout Hut we have ‘re-branded’ it as
The Barford Youth and Community Centre
Consultations have taken place to establish the wider needs of the Village.
We have contacted several suppliers and have selected a partner to go forward with.
We are also going to replace the garages with a purpose built storage facility and we should complete this by the beginning of March 2018.
Fund raising has already started – click here for an update.
It is expected that much more will need to be done later this year when we have some firm plans and better estimates of the cost.
