THE Carrum Downs Scouts Group will soon move into a permanent new home, after the state government pledged $250,000 to finish a new facility.

The new facility will include a mezzanine for meeting rooms, timber flooring, heating and cooling. It will also have a kitchen area, and an indoor adventure playground.

The scouts currently operate out of a pavilion at the Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve, however they have to relocate as part of the extensive redevelopment. They will move to Warehouse 1 Clifton Grove, Carrum Downs.

The Carrum Downs Scout Group currently has 95 members.

Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said “Carrum Downs Scouts give so much to our community, especially our young people. I am so glad we can now help them with their new home.”
