APPEAL: Save The 2nd Rhyl Scouts



A petition has been set up to save the uncertain future of the the 2nd Rhyl Scouts, a scouting movement that has been in Rhyl since the 1930s and was based in the Scout hut behind the Little Theatre until 2006.

The uncertainty lies after Denbighshire County Council has not provided a lease as agreed with terms of use and access to the Oak Tree Centre where they are now based.  The Scout Group has been an integral part of the Oak Tree Centre since it opened 9 years ago, providing useful input in the design and build stages.  As it currently stands the Scout Group is faced with a commercial hire charge which is unviable and also a reduction to meeting times which will affect all the sections.  As a voluntary charitable organisation 2nd Rhyl Scout Group requires support in helping them and acknowledging the fantastic experience and activities provided to so many young people in the past, present and on into the future.

The Leaders have tried to meet with Denbighshire County Council on several occasions in the past to resolve this situation, however Denbighshire County Council have been unwilling to negotiate and meetings have proved extremely difficult and unproductive.

You can help show your support and how important the 2nd Rhyl Scout group are to Rhyl town by signing the petition linked below.
