SCOUTS came together for the grand opening of their new state-of-the-art HQ in Henley.
More than 300 young people from across the West Warwickshire Scout District gathered for the occasion, which saw the opening of the 1st Henley and Wootton Scout headquarters by The Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire, Tim Cox, as well as a chance for the scouts to renew their promise and enjoy a range of activities from archery to CPR training.
Tim Cox, said: “As Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire, it is my was great pleasure to attend the official opening of the new scout hut for Henley and Wootton Scout Group. This new facility will provide a safe and welcoming space for young people to learn new skills, build friendships, and develop the qualities that will serve them well throughout their lives. I commend the dedication and hard work of all those involved in bringing this project to fruition, and I wish the Henley and Wootton Scout Group every success in the years ahead.”
Graham Mallinson, Group Scout Leader at 1st Henley and Wootton Scout Group, added: “Scouting has been helping the young people of Henley and Wootton develop life skills for more than 100 years. The new state of the art HQ means this can continue for many years to come.
“We’re so proud to be celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III. We’re inspired by his lifetime of service to help other people and support our communities. You can also try volunteering for yourself as part of The Big Help Out and take up the King’s volunteering challenge. It feels great to help other people and in Scouts there’s a place for everyone.”
