2nd South Petherton Scout Group

New Community Venue: Our project is to build and equip a new meeting place, not only for the Scouts and other youth groups but also for many other clubs and societies that exist in South Petherton, Somerset. It will even be suitable for smaller business meetings and seminars.
The vision is for a new building which will embrace the requirements of the whole community, not just the Scouts themselves. The Scout Group's present Headquarters - a second-hand timber building - is already home to the local Out-of-School Club and considerable interest is being shown in the project by other youth groups and organisations who can see how they could take advantage of the modern, disabled-friendly facilities envisaged. The inclusion of an indoor climbing wall will attract both adults and young people from a far wider catchment, and the fact that the building stands at one side of a large recreation ground makes it an ideal and safe venue for events involving younger children in particular.
Planning permission has already been granted.
