Construction Update

Work on the hut is progressing well.
We have completed the external work of phase 2 and are busy plaster boarding the walls and getting ready for the second fix-stage.

Walls plastered and with the first coat of paint

Much of this work is being carried out by volunteers, under the watchful eye of our builder. If you want to get involved please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Taking Shape

New Scout Hut
With the addition of the walls, it is now much easier to get a feel for the proportions of the new hut. They are still to be clad in timber.
As the photo shows the contractors have had to work in cold conditions this week.

Look No Nails!

This week the Scouts built a Leonardo da Vinci bridge – which just uses pieces of wood and friction – no nails, no rope, no glue!

Not sure whether this qualifies as part of the Pioneering badge or not, but still a lot of fun.
