1st Radlett Scouts awarded Lloyds Bank Community Fund grant
A Scout group will be able to refurbish its headquarters thanks to the support of the local community.
1st Radlett Scout Group has received £300 from the Lloyds Bank Community Fund after being voted for by members of the public.
The scout group, based in Kent Lodge in Scrubbitts Park Road, was founded in 1918 and provides activities and adventures for 90 children.
Its headquarters, built 50 years ago, is in need of repair and the money will be used to make the hut more up to date.
The organisation’s next project will be improving the toilets within the building, including replacing water heaters with plumbed hot water.
Four local organisations were shortlisted for the community grant, based on votes from members of the public.
The organisation with the most votes, Borehamwood Foodbank, received £3,000.
Group Scout leader Jackie Glover said she was pleased 1st Radlett Scouts had been shortlisted for the grant.
She said: "It is great that the Scout Group has been recognised in the community."
