Leon Waxman, Group Leader of 3rd Rose Bay (Judean) Scouts said that the grant could not have come at a better time.

Mr Waxman said, “We have been patching the damaged and rusted sections of the hall roof for years. To have enabled us to permanently fix the problem is outstanding.

Our Scout Group is working to upgrade the hall not only for our own use but for the other community groups that utilise this hall.”

Ms Upton said, “The grant will cover the urgent replacement of the leaking and damaged hall roof.

I’m so pleased that this upgrade will also ensure the Bondi Scout Hall can continue to host local Scouts groups like the 3rdRose Bay (Judean) Scout Group.

Scouts NSW is one of our largest and most popular youth organisations that help communities build leadership skills and friendship through healthy activities for young people. ”

Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said communities have done it tough during COVID-19, including organisations like Scouts NSW whose activities have been disrupted.

“This funding will help Scouts NSW bounce back with improvements to facilities throughout the State, many of which are also used by other community organisations,” Mr Stokes said.
