A scout building in Wakefield has been revamped with new windows to give it a new lease of life.
The Clayton West Scout Group has overhauled its headquarters for a second time. Ewan Scott, spokesman for the group, told the Huddersfield Examiner that the old windows were “draughty and insecure” with steel frames.
“A team of volunteers from Clayton West stripped off the old timbers and windows and replaced them with treated loglap boards and uPVC double glazing to give the old building a new lease of life,” he added.
Melvyn Batty, chairman of the group, told the newspaper that if the building had been left, it would have continued to deteriorate and mean the scouts would have to have found another premises.
Further improvements are planned for the building, including fixing the roof and extending the toilet area.
It is not the only scout hut the benefit from new double glazed windows, with Robin Hood’s Bay scouts in North Yorkshire recently seeing their base revamped after it was given nearly £9,000 in funding.
