Why should you support this bid?
Lending your support costs you nothing, this money has been set aside by the Surrey County Council. How it is spent, is down to you! Residents support which project should receive funding. Securing funding for this project will benefit Ash Residents!
The current facilities used by Scouts, Guides and Brownies are “dilapidated” and need to be replaced by a new building which is custom designed as an “energy efficient meeting place”. The new building although primarily for Scout, Guide and Small Community Groups use, aims to foster comradeship, tackle loneliness, connect the community and provide a hub for green initiatives for all members of the local community.
The existing building and its land are owned by the 1st Ash Vale Scout Group, which has been in existence for over 85 years.
Representatives from 1st Ash Vale Scouts have already consulted Members of Surrey County Council, who have given positive feedback to the proposals. However, this application still needs the wider support of local residents, as approval is by no means a guarantee. The £100m Your Fund Surrey programme is taking applications from all across the County and those with the greatest local community support will sway the final decision.
How can you help?
As well as a strong and competitive bid, residents are asked to lend their support by commenting on the proposal. You will be asked a few short questions, which will take no more than one minute. SCC will then instantly send you a confirmation email which you must click on to activate.
