BREAKING NEWS

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.

BACKGROUND

NEW BUILDING

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.
