BOOKHAM SCOUTING CENTRE
The premises on Lower Road have now been demolished! They were very old, comprising two halls on a very restricted site completely surrounded by roads. The "old hall" was nearly 100 years old and the "new hall" was constructed in the 1960s. Neither provided the facilities required by modern scouting. There was no outside space available for activities.
Access from dropping off and collecting children was limited and caused congestion at the beginning and end of each meeting (of which there are between one and three each afternoon/evening). The construction of the new doctors' surgery behind the site, whilst a welcome enhancement to the village facilities, further increased traffic in the vicinity.
The Move to our new site will overcome all of these shortcomings.
