Can you help Pudsey scout hut get a makeover?

29 May 2015

first pudseyFirst Pudsey Scout Group has put in a bid to win £5,000 to renovate the scout hut on the corner of Greenside and Fartown.

The hut, which dates back to before the second world war, desperately needs improvements to make it better and safer.

Now scout leaders have put in a bid to win £5,000 to improve their facilities from the Aviva Community Fund competition and are asking for YOU to support their bid by voting for it.

The grant money would go towards installing more radiators to keep the building warm, repairing a leaking roof, repainting the facilities, varnishing the floor, re-plastering, repainting the wash room and toilet, replacing the main door and installing a full working fire alarm. In their bid, a spokesperson says:

“By getting these repairs done it would help us to improve the building, and grounds for all the members of 1st Pudsey and members of the community of Pudsey who use our building.”

First Pudsey is one of the oldest Scout groups in Yorkshire and is run by volunteers and support from parents.

Get involved!
