HQ Building Project
Knutsford Scouts are planning to replace the existing 1st Knutsford Scout Group headquarters, situated on the Moor, with a new modern community building conducive to its surroundings in this conservation area.
1st Knutsford Scout Group has been established on the Moor in Knutsford since 1910 and forms a key component of Scouting activities within Knutsford District. Scouting in Knutsford has undergone ten years of continuous growth but the current facilities on the Moor limit the number of young people that can be accommodated and restricts future expansion.
In order to expand the group we are proposing to rebuild the facilities to modern standards and to cater for current and future requirements.
The current building has been well loved and much effort has gone into its regular maintenance. The age of the building is not conducive to modern Scouting needs and means that the fabric of the building has deteriorated to the point that it is no longer viable to continue renovating it.
What Next? The Challenge
The challenge is to get the building off the paper and out of the ground. The current building will be removed entirely and the new headquarters built on the same plot.
Total build cost is estimated to be £160,000 which is to be met from a combination of grants, donations and fundraising activities.
Donations can be made through our dedicated 1st Knutsford HQ Fundraising Site
We are exceedingly grateful for any donations received through this site which will help to secure the high quality provision of Scouting for the benefit of the young people in our community.
Donations of building materials and services are equally welcome – please contact HQ Fundraising Leader Michele Hammond firstname.lastname@example.org
