Three years ago, a piece of land was purchased on the edge of Wigton to be used by Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts. It has proved hugely popular and we have done a large amount of work, including fencing it, for which we had to raise £14,000.
We would now like to build a log cabin, which will allow us to offer more activities to more children, as we currently have a waiting list for most sections.
Our current meeting place, a hall, in another village, is far too small, particularly for our Scout meetings, when we have over 50 Scouts and leaders together at the same time.
We hope with support from the local community and beyond, that we can bring 1st Wigton Scout Group back to Wigton, so Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts can be in the town of their name, with space to play and learn.
