We are delighted to announce that after 10 years of fundraising the 2nd Brewood Scout Group have completed the purchase of the existing Scout Hut, the land and the other buildings from the County Council. This purchase will safeguard the future of the Scouts and provide a site which is a community asset dedicated to the young people of Brewood.
This accomplishment has only been made possible due to the continuous unflagging support from the residents of Brewood and the surrounding villages along with the participants of our events over more than 10 years for which we thank you.
Over 400 parents, residents and friends wrote to the County Council objecting to their plan not to renew the lease which resulted in a stay of execution allowing the Group to start fundraising.
Activities were wide and varied and included car washing, raffles, quiz nights, car boot sales, music nights, BQQs, a classic car fete and proceeds from The Trading Post.
These activities together with the Brewood Cycle Challenge, the Brewood Woggle and generous legacies, raised sufficient funds which, when the opportunity arose, enabled the 2nd Brewood Scout Group to purchase the site.
We would like to thank all those hundreds of volunteers, too many to mention individually, who have helped with this venture. Everyone who, turned out in all weathers to marshal, to sell tickets, erect marquees, organise, to invent, solve problems and do so over and over again have all played their part.
We would also like to thank those companies and organisations who contributed by donating raffle prizes, providing transport, giving generous discounts for supplies and allowing us the use of their facilities.
Last but not least we shouldn’t forgot all those who put their hand in their pocket and took part in all the events we organised.
And the work doesn’t stop here! The Brewood Woggle and the Brewood Cycle Challenge will continue to fundraise for the 2nd Brewood Scout Group. All the proceeds will go towards renovating the Scout facilities and the ongoing running costs ensuring the next generation can benefit from this fantastic organisation which prepares young people with skills for life.
