New Den (hall)
St Johns Wood Scouts moved to the current site in 1958 and erected a kit shed with no floor. The building has reached the end of its useful life and needs replacement for the Scouts to continue to deliver their program to local youth. Planning, consultation and fundraising have taken two decades and the new hall (den) is within reach, subject to final approvals and grant funding.
New Den News
After many year of discussion, fundraising, community support and great joy, the 30 year dream of a new scout den is finally starting to get some legs..
Along with the new main den, the top den is getting some much needed repairs with about $60k of work completed in 2020/2021, including a new roof, ceiling, many internal walls, new toilets, solar panels, floor sanded and coated, and external path.
Progress is reported regularly in our SJW Scouts Newsletter.
