A ‘tatty’ scout hut has been given a make-over in time to mark the troop’s 50th anniversary.

The Brickhill Scout Group building now boasts a refurbished interior with a new kitchen, new toilets and a new non-slip floor.

The group volunteers also repainted the walls, two of which are the scouting purple.

Scout group secretary Caroline Romans said: “It was very tatty and it became too big a job for us. It’s bright and modern inside now. The floor has made a big difference as it is much safer for the children, especially in wet weather.”

The renovations were carried out by Tesco and RG Carter community project teams at no charge to the scouts, who held a grand opening for the new-look building.

Scout Group chairperson Nicky Murphy added: “We are very grateful to Tesco and RG Carter for their generosity and skills in transforming the interior of the building. It is incredible how much they were able to achieve in a little over a week.

“We hope they enjoyed the opening ceremony as much as the children did and look forward to the building being used for the next 50 years!”

The organisation runs Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, which take children from six-years-old through to 14.

It is looking for new adult volunteers. Contact
