Barnt Green Scout and Guide HQ Fund was officially launched by Sir Digby Jones, Director General of the CBI and a former member of the Barnt Green Scout group.

The new HQ will replace the burnt-down Scout hut and provide a new home for Guides, who are still based in a World War One hut.

Sir Digby (above with representatives from all the Scout and Guiding aged groups) praised the movements for “giving a code of conduct for younger people’s lives in the future”.

The launch was followed by a Spring Fair, which raised around £2,000 towards the fund. The aim is to raise a total of £250,00.
