The story so far ...
... we have transformed Abbeyview Clinic into a modern, multi-purpose Scout Centre with a main activity space, Leaders room and breakout room. There's also a main office, committee room, art and craft (messy) room plus storage facilities for the equipment and resources needed by our five regular Section meetings for up to 120 youngsters.
In addition, the building has a large store room for our camping equipment stock plus breakout space in the entrance hallway, a reception office, kitchen and toilet facilities. This provides a Scout Centre which will be able to accommodate wider Scouting use and, in due course, community meeting and activity facilities. The Centre is also fully accessible.
The site also offers parking and access that is significantly better than the old location and is part of the busy central Abbeyview area with the Community Centre, Tryst Centre, St Ninian's Church, Abbeyview Bowling Club and local shops.

Once again, our young people are starting to meet up outdoors and take part in the activities they love.
With the proper precautions in place they've been hiking, tent-pitching, fire-lighting, exploring the local woods and taking part in a whole range of exciting activities at Scout Adventures, Fordell Firs.

With proper precautions and procedures in place, we're now able to meet indoors. We prefer the great outdoors, but this is great because Scottish weather doesn't always co-operate with outdoor activities!
Things may not be completely normal, but we're getting there.
