Centenary Project

We continue to focus on the delivery of our Centenary Project, which aims to delivery improvements to the scout facilities, bring them up to standard and fit for the 21st century.

We have so far been able to carry out improvements to the main entrance, making this accessible and welcoming, with a ramped and stepped approach, a new area to wait and the benefit of an accessible toilet.

We have also fitted a brand new stainless steel kitchen area to the side hall to allow for group cooking activities and installed a new hot water system to serve this area. The roof has been replaced and upgraded, the flooring replaced and a new side access for equipment installed.

In the summer of 2013 we have completed the construction of new girls toilet as well as improvements to the existing boys toilets. The new extension will also allow the hall and the cottage to be internally linked for the first time.

Our emphasis is twofold for the remainder of 2013 and during 2014 which will be on refurbishing the main hall and in memory of Alex Wright a large covered area in the grounds at the rear of the scout hut which is currently awaiting planning consent.

To assist the committee and the scout leaders in this and the general maintenance of the Scout Hall and its grounds a Friends of Charlton Kings group has recently been formed.
