SOS SAVE OUR SCOUT HUT AND SCOUT GROUP

We have been evicted from our Scout Hut

Forty years ago parents  and volunteers raised money and built the Hut because  renting a building  was not feasible anymore due to lack of storage for equipment and the additional use of the building when required.  .  We have improved and maintained the building ever since.

Our current lease on the land expired in Sept 2016, since then we have been trying to get a new lease,  but Colney Heath Parish Council have kept delaying a new lease  and keep changing the goal posts on why they cannot issue another lease to us.

We always paid our rent and covered the building insurance, upkeep and ongoing maintenance of the hut within the fenced area.  The hut has never cost the Council anything.  Many years ago we even paid half towards the cost of installing lighting in the Car Park.  The car Park is not part of our lease, but we willingly contributed because it would benefit the Group in terms of safety

We are a community volunteer run charity and any funds we have are spent on the young people providing Better skills for life.

By refusing to cash our recent  cheques we feel  CHPC have made a clear Asset Grab to cover their backs as it was already entered  on their Asset Register before our lease for the land only  ended..
