Thank you for your Votes

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Derwent Valley AAP Your Voice, Your Money, Your Vote event to day. There was a fantastic turn out of people, including alot of parents from 1st Consett and 1st Blackhill. It was also amazing how many of the people who we spoke to used be a scout, or know someone who is at the moment.
When all the votes were counted, Consett and Blackhill Scouts got the most votes, winning the £5,000 we applied for. This is a great boost for us, and the money will now go towards the next stage of the build, which is the electrics and plumbing. Hopefully we will be in the new headquarters by Easter!
