You may have noticed the building work at the Scout Hut on Benty Lane. This is the headquarters of the 36th Sheffield St John’s Ranmoor Scout Group.
The group is looking to upgrade and modernise the building in a series of phases to provide:
- wheelchair access
- better toilet facilities
- more space for all the different groups that use it.
This is a community asset that, as well as providing a home for the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, is also made use of by various local groups including the Old School House Nursery; Art Classes; Computer Classes; Chairobics and Sensory Classes for Babies. It’s hoped that the upgrades to the building will allow even more groups to use it.
The group are trying to raise money to allow this work to be completed and among other things are running sponsored walks, family bingo evenings and running a buy a brick campaign.
They could really use your support – whether you are a former Beaver, Cub or Scout yourself or a parent of one of the past, current and future Scouting members or a friend of the Scouting movement.
