£2k boost for re­vamp

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - YOURVOICE -

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.
