1st Clanfield Scout Group

In 2006 vandals burned down the headquarters with the loss of not only the building but all the equipment as well. It was a meeting place for not only the Scout Group but a number of other young peoples organisations. Because the building had an adjacent paddock area, it was often used for other community activities.

It is imperative that this building be rebuilt since it is the only accommodation in the village that is able to accommodate young peoples organisations. The proposed new building will boast a number of environmental friendly items along with full facilities for persons with special needs. This project has been given 100% support from Clanfield Parish Council, Hampshire County Council, The Veolia Environmental Trust, outside Organisations, Business outlets, the local residents and from neighbouring communities. Since it has become known that fund raising has commenced to rebuild this accommodation, other organisations have approached the Group with a view to using the headquarters and organising various other young peoples activities.

An enormous amount of fund raising is being carried out and we are now more than halfway to our target, but any further financial assistance that can be given to us to achieve our aim will be very much appreciated.
