    Petitioning Caroline Lacey Chief Executive East Riding of Yorkshire Council

    Save Our Scout HQ

    ProblemMolescroft Scouts in Beverley, are being evicted from their home by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) without compensation. Molescroft Scouts, which includes Beavers, Cubs & Scouts for 6 to 14 year olds, have been located on the site of Longcroft Lower School since the 1970s. The building was constructed with money from local volunteers and now ERYC plan to redevelop the site but aren’t planning to give Molescroft Scouts compensation for their building which they will demolish. Also, the council has only give us 1 year in which to vacate the site and find a new home!Unless Molescroft Scouts can find a new home and build something new, the group will close. This will be a blow for the local community and will affect more than 70 children who enjoy Scouting and develop essential skills for life through their activities.  SolutionSign our petition and help us fight ERYC for compensation for our building and extra time to find a new home. We the undersigned object to the disposal of Longcroft Lower School site without a condition to reinstate the Scout HQ facilities appropriately in Molescroft.
