Scouts prepared to replace old windows

Article Written By: East Lindsey Target

Members of a Scout group are hoping a cash grant will help speed up the refurbishment of their hut.

The 2nd Spilsby Scout group was awarded £500 from East Lindsey Councillor Jim Swanson, as one of his community grants, to help the group replace windows in the building.

Group Scout leader Claire Lister said they had started replacing the Scout hut windows late last summer but there were still four left that needed doing.

She said: "The grant will cover the cost of one of the windows as they are £500 each. We have eight big windows in the hut which are 8ft by 4ft each.

"They are the same windows from 1938 when the building was a telephone exchange.

"There were two sets of windows put in to look like double glazing, the second set has been there since the 1950s and nothing has been done to them."

She said the windows with metal frames were badly cracked in places.

She said: "I joined the group 12 years ago and they needed something doing to them then so it is good they are finally having something done.
