Is this The Last Post?

Grand Opening 21st July 2013

We were joined by a large number of supporters & well wishers for the great day.
Parents, members, scouts from Germany, The Lord Mayor of Norwich and Elizabeth Thomas the great grand daughter of our founder Edward Coe, as well as Sir Nicholas Bacon the president of the project committee and many many more.

After the ceremonies, ribbon cutting and flag breaking, cakes were cut, toasts made and 
stories swapped around a campfire at the end of the day.

Back after a break in transmission!

Back after a break!
We have not forgotten our followers
but we have been busy with finishing off jobs
and are still hard at it most every Tuesday.
Our eggs have hatched!

Sorry for the gap in updates but I've been away...


the builders have not been idle and we are very nearly at the end

We have been very lucky and received another boost with a grant from Norfolk County Council Community Construction Fund. 

This will allow us to complete the ground works around the building and a number of internal items 

The view from the the river
Currently the doors are being hung, the walls painted, and the lights connected. The wooden floor in the main hall has been laid and the heating is working.
This is what it looks like inside:-
The shiny new main hall
 A happy scout leader
 No not the monkey cage at the zoo
this is the view in through the windows that
overlook our back garden and river

After around 4 months with builders Draper and Nichols on site

under Gary's watchful eye the building is really taking shape. 

Adam & Steve are fixing the cedar cladding outside

This side is completed already
After some years weathering the timbers will turn a silver grey colour,
but they will last for over 50 years

 The concrete screed is being laid inside
in readiness for the main hall heating pipes
and then the wood floor

The walls have been clad inside and are being skimmed with plaster.
The whole place is looking really good.
