Grant for Marquee Tent - Update

We were lucky enough this year to have been awarded a grant which enabled us to purchase a Gala event marquee for our Scout Group. As a Group we have grown and therefore have more young members who wish to enjoy the fun of camping and being outdoors. Living in Devon, as you may know, the weather is often wet and windy which can be challenging for camping. Trying to keep everyone dry, cook and still have fun is a big factor to a happy camp. Having a new marquee for our camps means we have space for our young members to eat their meals and carry out other activities if the weather is not dry.

We have had out new tent now for 6 weeks and it has already been used twice.
