A plaque to mark the revamp of Aldbourne scout and guide headquarters

The Scout headquarters in Aldbourne, which is used by more than 140 boys and girls, is now as good as new, thanks to its first full refurbishment in four decades.

A grant of £1,738 from the Marlborough Area Board of Wiltshire Council contributed to the makeover of the Scout and Guide Hall.

And on Wednesday board chairman Chris Humphries will be presenting a “supported by Wiltshire Council” plaque to Aldbourne Scout and Guides to mark the event.

“This is the first full scale re-decoration of the hut since it was built nearly 40 years ago,” Claire Currie of Aldbourne Scots and Guides told Marlborough News Online.  “We are really grateful to the area board for giving us a grant towards the much needed refurbishment of the hall.”

“We were able to use the grant to repaint the interior of the hall, erect notice boards, and install some outside lighting, electrical works and hand dryers.  Since the work has been completed we have had a lot of positive comments from the children and their parents."

The scout and guides in the area, their ages ranging from four to 16, come from Aldbourne itself, as well as Baydon and nearby Hungerford.

Mr Humphries, commented: “We were delighted to give funding towards this very worthwhile project.  Aldbourne Scout and Guides provide a marvellous service for so many of our young people.”

“Now their hall has been refurbished I hope they will continue providing such a service for many more decades to come.”
