Scoutings Back, Roof’s up, Win, Win!

Posted on September 30th, 2020 by Sam Raby

Yes that’s right. The 14th Walthamstow will be returning to face to face scouting in October. We have been working hard to ensure that this can be done in a safe manor and in compliance with the government guidelines.

We have sent out an information pack to all parents detailing how this is going to work. If anyone has not yet received this we urge you to get in touch with us ASAP.

Update on the Build!

As many of you know we have taken the opportunity in lock down to get some work done on the hall. We are now at a stage where the roof is going on! So its exciting times!

We have also done really well with our fundraiser! raising more than £1100. We are so close to our target now. We would really appreciate it if anyone can share it with their friends and family.

The Hall has always been a central part of the community and we are hoping to make it more accessable to future generations. Your donations will help us do the final fit out.

Building work is underway on the new extension!

Posted on July 14th, 2020 by Sam Raby

On Monday we started the work to extend the front of our hall. We will be installing a brand new disability toilet & Shower room, better storage for our tables and chairs and a larger multi-purpose meeting room.

We are now looking for your help in raising money for the fixtures and fittings. We want to ensure that the new rooms are the best that they can be, to make them more usable and accessible to more people and the future generations of our group.

Anything you could spare to help us would be greatly appreciated!

Step By Step:
1) Group 7 sticks together with a band at each end.

3) Attach the last stick to the group of two, but this time only the one end.
4) Slide the group of 7 sticks down the middle of the three, and secure with more bands.
