Hello Everyone

I am pleased to announce our project to build a new facility that will include the 1st Shelton Lock Scout and Guide Group Head Quarters is launched today.

Here is short summary of what we are trying to achieve plus a bit of back ground information.

We have completed the following:

  1. A signed land lease between the Scouting Association and Derby City Council. (in Shelton Lock Derby).
  2. A building contract with an East Midlands building developer

3.Full planning permission for a single storey building (the building designed  environmental and sustainability in mind)

  1. Funding from the National Youth Investment fund for the building costs

What is happening now

  1. Building contractor will start in the next couple of weeks, and it is anticipated build time will be 10 months.
  2. We are planning to communicate with any interested parties who would like use this facility Ie Derby Youth Alliance
  3. Let the local community know about this project

In the future

Official opening (not yet planned)

I hope this email gives an understanding of what we are trying to achieve.

We want all our local young people to feel valued and provide a high quality facility for them to use.

If you, or you know someone or a group who may be interested in using this facility. Please let me know.

Thank you

Kind regards

Sue Baker

Chair of 1st Shelton Lock Scout and Guide Group
