The Hinchley Wood & Weston Green, Long Ditton & Thames Ditton Local Spending Board welcomed Ms. D. Goodhugh and P. Bartlett, representatives of The Dittons Scout Group to the meeting. Mr. Bartlett presented the application and provided Members with background information in respect of funding to replace and upgrade the roof of The Dittons Scout Group headquarters building.
Mr. Bartlett explained that the roof was leaking, asbestos cement tiles had become dislodged and therefore replacing the roof was the only option. Furthermore, it was highlighted that the leaking roof would prevent continued usage of the Scout building as health and safety would prohibit the building being used.
Members were fully supportive of the application and on consideration of the application, the Local Spending Board
Resolved that £45,000 be awarded to The Dittons Scout Group towards replacing and upgrading the roof of the Scout building.
