Need for a new Horsell Scout "hut"

Today I took Lib Dem Leader on Woking Council Richard Sharp to meet representatives of Horsell Scouts. We met at the scout hut in the village to see just how desperately they are need of a new building.

Richard was particularly impressed at just how much the Scouts and Guides have raised over the years. The current total from fundraising and donations stands at around £100,000. The scouts don’t rest on their laurels. Whilst we were visiting work was in full swing in preparation for the very popular May Fayre held every bank holiday Monday on Wheatsheaf Common.

We toured around both inside and outside of the facility. From the outside you can see what a hotch potch of buildings make up the hut. Part of the building is a former school prefabricated classroom. This came to the scouts some years ago, having already spent a number of years at a school.

Richard was left in no doubt as to how much the scouts need some help from the council to make their new building a reality.
