Just to keep you up to date, if you haven’t already noticed, but we have started our new headquarters build!
This is great news and it’s really pleasing to see a positive start to the build just as the ‘nice’ weather has finally arrived. Our builder has already been very busy on site with his digger and has so far dug the foundation trenches and the groundwork’s for the water services. So, we should start to see the building take shape in the weeks to come!
If you couldn’t make our ‘Spade in the Ground’ ceremony on Wednesday, the photos are on the website. We had a great ‘first’ spade in the ground by Luis Thompson and Daniel Wilson, our two youngest Beavers, and we invited along representatives from our two major sponsors, Rugby Benevolent Fund, Greame Fuller, and DHL, Les Fletcher. Together with Rugby Borough Council, they have provided a significant portion of the funding so our thanks go out to them.
We still need to keep working on the funding, so look out for the fundraisers coming our way, a Race Night is planned and a ‘Mile of Pennies’ will be great little fundraiser for the youngsters to get involved in.
We’ll be posting updates and photos on the build progress so keep checking back!
Many thanks for all the support from everyone, every contribution, whether its money or time, is really appreciated. I’m sure we’ll have a great new headquarters for the 12th and the youngsters will be able to enjoy their scouting in a great new location.
