When we featured all the appeals across the Island for the NatWest Community Force initiative a couple of days ago, we mentioned that there were two in Ventnor that we could not retrieve details from the online map for.
One of those was the 3rd Ventnor Cub Scout Group, who have been in touch to let us know.
The scout group are hoping to be awarded some cash to re-wire the scout hut and replace their current gas heaters, only one of which works.
The scout group caters for 40 children at the moment, but are hoping to increase the numbers over the coming year.

They tell the NatWest Community Force that they “try and give local children a place to come and enjoy themselves through a mix of play, education and adventure. Hopefully we can expand to take more young people.
“The Scout group aims to help any and all community initiatives. we are always looking at new ideas to help in our community, whether it be litter picking or a concert in a local care home.”
