104th User group Questionnaire for Re-development of Scout Hall

To assist the potential redevelopment of the Scout Hall and grounds, we would appreciate if you could take a few minutes and answer the questions below.

Many thanks – from Scout Hall Property Sub-Committee

Background

The Scout Hall is some 63 years old (built in 1955) and although some upgrading work was done around ten years ago, in terms of facilities for its current user groups, they have fallen behind and don’t meet the current demand nor the community needs e.g. disabled access is limited.

DEADLINE FRIDAY 1st MARCH 2019

The 104th will be holding a sponsored walk on Saturday 23rd September.

This year we are walking the route from Ratho Station back to the Scout Hall. The total distance is 12 miles but as you can see below, there are other options to join us and walk a shorter distance. We will be setting off from Ratho at about 11am and the rough timings for the pick-up points along the way are shown below.

  • 1100h – Start walkng
  • 1230h Stop at Kingsknowe Roadhouse (7 miles to Scout Hall)
  • 1315h – Set off again
