£2k boost for revamp
THE 1st Montrose Scout Group’s ageing building will get a revamp after it was awarded £2,000 from Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme.
The project won the votes of many shoppers in the Montrose and Brechin stores, meaning renovation work can now begin.
The hall in Queen Street was built in 1925 and is beginning to show its age. The Tesco windfall will help to pay for the installation of a new, fit-for-purpose kitchen and new lighting in the main hall.
Wendy Milne, chairwoman of the group, thanked supporters and said the award would benefit the children as well as other groups using the hall.
