Scout Camp reopened
Tue 22nd October 2013 1.57PM
Base Camp at Oak Avenue, Cheadle Hulme, has been closed for nearly a year for refurbishment as part of an innovative partnership between Stockport Council, Stockport Homes, the Stockport housing association and Cheadle District Scout Council costing over 250,000
The refurbishment has been completed and gives Base camp an additional hall and meeting room as well as upgrading the previous accommodation. Base camp also accommodates Brownies, Rainbows and Guides from the Guide association and an Explorer unit and has other community users such as CATS, Bridge class, Keep fit and Dance School
Tim Shaw, the Cheadle District Commissioner said: This is an innovative partnership working benefiting all stakeholders and the local community.
Chris Jeffries, chair of Cheadle District Scout Council said: It has been difficult not being able to use Base Camp over the past year but the refurbishment is well worth the wait.
