The oldest and youngest Scouts (Terence Rathbone and young Alfie Warren) helped Fiona Bruce declare the new 1st Goostrey Scouts’ hut and youth centre open today, in front of a large gathering of villagers and supporters.
Goostrey Parish Council, having gifted the site to the Scouts originally and providing a donation of £50,000, and representative from the landfill charity WREN (which also awarded a generous grant of £50,000) also attend the opening ceremony.
Congratulations and ‘well done’ to Scout Leader David Giles who thanked everyone for their support and hard work over the last three years to provide a marvellous facility available for the young people of Goostrey saying that it will be filled with fun and laughter over the many years to come. ( And pointed out that it also includes a meeting room that is available to hire!)
