All-weather covered area for Scout group

A local Rotary club has supported the construction of an all-weather covered area to allow more activities to take place at the 2nd Reepham Scout Group’s Smugglers Lane, Reepham, headquarters.

The Scout group was successful with a grant application for the Peter Sell Annual Award from the Leslie Sell Charitable Trust to cover the costs of materials for a 9 x 14 metre unit on an all-weather woodchip base.
With the help of Reepham & District Rotary Club members, foundations were dug, base posts mounted and a frame constructed to take the waterproof skin.
This completes a busy period of activity for the Scouts, with repainting and upgrading of indoor facilities, the construction of an outdoor henge with integrated fire base for camps and a hut for woodcraft instruction.
An archery and shooting range is also under construction and due for completion in mid-2022.
