About Sleaford Scout Group
The 3rd Sleaford scout group are based in the town, and have been part of the community since 1947 (in its current form).
Sleaford scout group are part of the National Scout association, and have young people from Sleaford and surrounding areas from the age of 6-18 years attending weekly meetings.
The group have our own HQ in town, and this serves as a community building housing the local girl guide groups, Kesteven Morris dancers and host District and County scout meetings.
How would £1000 benefit Sleaford Scout Group?
Our group maintain our scout hq and grounds at Reform Place, though our fundraising and subscriptions. This is getting harder to do as insurance and running costs start to rise.
The main entrance gate & entrance doors to the scout hq have been in situ since 1997, and now they need to be upgraded to provide additional security to the site and to keep our young people safe from harm.
These need to be replaced as security for our building is paramount at all times, and access for all required.
Why do you think it is A Grand Idea?
The scout hq is an asset to the community- providing a meeting place for a number of local groups and those from further afield – including local magistrates, scouts, guides and morris dancers. We are proud to be able to call our scout hq home since 1947, and we have seen many events and activities held here for numerous generations of Sleaford people.
We need to ensure the current and future generations can participate in their activities securely, in a building that many other groups envy.
