A Scout group will be more accessible after the installation of a new ramp at their scout hut.
The 10th Royston Scout Group have celebrated the opening of the new access ramp for their Royston headquarters. Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, leaders and parents were joined by representatives of two of the major donors, North Herts District Council and Johnson Matthey, for the opening ceremony last weekend.
Other funds for the ramp, which cost about £6,000, were raised through the group’s annual Christmas postal service and grants from the Hertfordshire County Council locality budget scheme and Royston Round Table.
Steve Renwick, Group Scout leader, said: “Scouting gives young people fantastic opportunities to do activities and adventures that people who are not Scouts often don’t get to do.
“We are able to also bring awareness to the young people of our group.

“I’m really proud of what our group has achieved, and we can now consider all abilities joining the 10th Royston Scout Group and I would like to thank the committee and all our donors for their help in enabling the completion of this project.”
The installation of the ramp marks the end of a two-year project to update the scout hut.
