Overnight on the 15th November 2018 our hut in the woods was destroyed.
We have been using this site for many many years, there was a wooden hut here before and chances are if you are local that you used this as a child or know someone who did.
We have just spent the last 5 years rebuilding it as a group of volunteers, fundraising and spending our weekends and evenings so that the 150 young people of 1st Midsomer Norton Scout Group and the children of the wider district of Wansdyke can use it.
It looks like none of the kit was stolen so this was pure mindless vandalism.
We would like to raise funds to restore it to it’s former glory and get the young people back on site as quickly as possible.
We are a group that likes to be outdoors and wants to firstly make it safe and secondly rebuild as quickly as possible.
The children spend hours here every week and it’s hugely upsetting that people would do this to such a great resource. We prepare young people with skills for life, help us to do that by giving what you can to get our hut back up and running as soon as possible.
If you are a local tradesperson who could help and/or resources or if you are press and would like to help us get the word out please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Massive thank you in advance.
