As we approach our 100th birthday, we are continual reviewing the site and its facilities. As part of our development plan, we have set up a Friends of Dunham Park Scout Camp group as a registered Charity (Number 1185766) to raise money to fund improvements across the site. The current Frank Harrop Lodge (indoor accommodation) has been re-roofed and the next phase is to replace all the windows with double glazing, a refurbished kitchen and creating accessible toilet & washing facilities. The latter is part funded by £2000 from Tesco bags for life having come second in the Altrincham blue token scheme. In 2020, we have contributed towards the new Adventure Playground for Scouts, to compliment the current equipment for Beavers and Cub ages.
Total raised as at 1st May 2020 = £6167. Thanks to all our contributors!
