    Story

    I am the Local Police Sergeant Covering Northwood & Northwood Hills. We are looking at supporting the 1st Northwood Scouts in achieving their target in order for them to be able to build a brand new Scouting Centre as the original one is no longer ecomonically viable to maintain.
    I will be taking part in the Vitality London 10k Run on the 29th May 2017 & I need your Support for this cause.

    Please Read the following which gives you some more information about the project.

    On the 1st of March at Fairfield Church in Northwood Hills, the 1st Northwood Scout Group launched its £100,000 appeal to replace the existing Scout Hut with an enlarged Scouting Centre. The launch was attended by the Mayor of Hillingdon Cllr John Hensley, and the Deputy Mayor Cllr Carol Melvin; there were also several other important guests present including all three Northwood Hills Councillors, Chief Inspector Rob Bryan, Sergeant Phipps, PC Christmas & PCSO Soler

    The current Hut in Northwood Way was built in 1956; after 60 years of hard use it is no longer economical to maintain and repair. Building the new centre is planned to commence in the summer of 2018.

    Whilst Scouting is better known for its challenging outdoor activities and adventures, many skills taught by the Scout Leaders take place inside the Hut. These include cooking, IT skills including computers and smartphones, map reading including use of GPS, first aid, bicycle maintenance and DIY. The existing hut is in use five days a week throughout the year.

    **THE BUDGET** - for the new building has been set at £170,000. A considerable sum of money has been set aside in reserves from the last 10 years of Jumble Sales, and shall be getting a Capital Grant from our Scout District. A challenging target has been set to raise the remaining £100,000 in the next 12 months, so that orders can be placed for the building during the Spring of 2018.
