The scouting organisation in Horncastle is already going from strength-to-strength.
And, as a further boost, they could soon have a new-look Scout Hut as their headquarters.
Plans are progressing to extend the existing hut in Coronation Walk, Horncastle.
The project received a major bonus this week with a cash injection from the town’s Lincolnshire Co-op store.
The scouts are the latest local group to benefit from the Co-op’s Community Fund and received £603.75.
Our picture (above) shows Rebecca Herrick, the Co-op’s local community representative, handing over a cheque to Hellena Burman, chair of Horncastle Scouts, with Theresa Swinson looking on.
The money will go towards funds for the new hut.
Rebecca said: “The plans have been drawn up and the next stage is getting planning permission.”
The new-look hut will feature a separate meeting room and improved toilet and kitchen facilities.
Rebecca added: “It’s something we’ve had in mind for a long time and the money from the Co-op will make a big difference.
“We’d like to thank them for their help.”
The hut is ‘home’ to two Scout groups, a Beaver pack and a Cub pack.
Rebecca said: “All the groups are very popular and scouting in Horncastle is going very well.”
There are a few vacancies for the Monday night Scout group.
