The Challenge:

Build a new Scout HQ and Community Hub for Fetcham.

1st Fetcham Scout Group is a thriving Scout Group that sits at the heart of our community.   We have over 200 boys and girls aged 5 – 18 years along with countless adult volunteers who all enjoy the challenge and adventure that Scouting offers.

We are now facing our biggest challenge yet…. Building a new Scout HQ and Community Hub for the people of Fetcham and the surrounding area to use and enjoy.

The past:

Our current Scout Hut was built in 1956, for £1500, by the Scouts and their parents and has come to the end of its useable life.

The present:

We have been granted planning permission to build a brand new HQ which will enable us to offer Scouting to greater numbers of young people.  The new building will also be used by the wider community. 

The new building will be relocated to a more suitable site as part of the redevelopment of the eastern end of the Cock Lane recreation ground. 

Our Project HQ team is working hard behind the scenes. Led by an experienced project manager and assisted by a dedicated team of volunteers we are busy moving the project forward, applying for grants and sourcing other funding as well as fundraising within the local community.

In total we need to raise over £600 000 for our new building. 

The Future:

Our new purpose built HQ will be used by all the 9 sections within 1st Fetcham Scout Group along with other community organisations and charities. It will also be available for wider community use.

The total raised through all fundraising streams to date is £50 000.

In addition, we have the promise of funding from grants and trusts however we still need to raise a significant sum of money ourselves.
