From a Scout Den to a Woodturners Workshop

In August 2014, we purchased the run down Scout Hall in St Leonards Park, Hastings.   The building has been completely re-furbished including a new roof, windows, kitchen and toilets.  The roof was done as a public project by the local Certified Builders group, all other work has been done by Guild members with guidance from certified Builders.  The building was Officially opened by the Mayors of both Hastings and Napier in February 2015.
