For several years now, a number of our leaders has been tirelessly working together to create a truly festive atmosphere at the 26th Scout Headquarters. This year, we’re as excited as ever to continue this tradition. We can confirm our outdoor Christmas lights our twinkling away and available for you and your family to admire the festive atmosphere. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Digital Age Events for once again generously donating the dazzling lights, and we’re equally grateful to the SEND Group for their valuable contribution towards covering the electricity bill.

At the heart of our efforts lies a deep commitment to the Scouting movement and the young members of our community who benefit from it. Our Scout Headquarters serves as a vital hub for the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and the District Explorer Group, providing them with a safe and enriching space for their weekly activities. Scouting plays an essential role in the development of character, leadership skills, and a strong sense of community in our young people.

However, we recognise that with the ever-increasing economic challenges, the cost of maintaining and improving our headquarters is on the rise. This is why our Christmas Lights has an Appeal this year. Our goal is to unite our community in support of the 21st-century vision we have for our headquarters. This vision includes exploring new, energy-efficient solutions, such as modern heating and improved insulation, to make our headquarters more sustainable and eco-friendly.

Enhancing our Scout Headquarters isn’t just about adding a fresh coat of paint; it’s about transforming it into a modern, inviting space that truly serves our scouting community.

Our vision goes beyond aesthetics. We’re committed to energy efficiency, embracing sustainable solutions that benefit both our environment and our finances. By implementing modern heating and insulation, we’re not only ensuring the safety and comfort of our members during all seasons but also reducing ever expanding costs. Through these improvements, we hope to create a lasting legacy for Scouting.

By contributing to our Christmas Lights Appeal and sharing this post with your friends and family, you’re not only helping us spread the festive cheer but also investing in the future of Scouting in our area.

So, please, join us in this important endeavour. Share the magic of our festive lights with your loved ones, and together, let’s ensure that Scouting remains a beacon of character development and community building for the youth of our generation.
