Capital Appeal for our New Phoenix Scout Hut
The P&H Sea Scouts recognised that the current scout hut was not fit for purpose and took the decision to launch a capital appeal to rebuild the hut and boat deck. The final cost for the build will be £900,000 and we have raised an amazing £350,000 towards the appeal. we now need your help to keep the appeal going.
Why do we need a new hut?
The current building doesn’t have disabled access or facilities and other general facilities are poor. The Sea Scouts have a great filed and skiffs but need more facilities in an eco friendly building, we would also like to offer our facilities and activities to children and adults with disabilities but currently wheelchair access is unavailable.
At the moment Sea Scouts can only go on the water between May and October as there are no hot shower facilities – a necessity as the hut is located away from the river as the Thames is tidal and floods daily during spring and autumn tides. Having hot showers means the scouts can warm up quickly from being in the water.
What will the new building offer?
The new building will be more eco friendly and larger in size to allow more beavers, cubs and scouts to join the troop. It will be a community building with availability to other groups in the local community, including faith groups, volunteers and special needs schools. Additional to the hut there is a field for sports, camping and learning wildlife skills, which would benefit from the disabled access too.
