Little Heath and Potters Bar Scout Group’s �2,400 boost
A SCOUT group has been given a cash boost of more than �2,000 thanks to two Potters Bar councillors.
The 1st Little Heath and Potters Bar Scout Group has been awarded �2,400 in order to improve its hut in Quakers Lane.
The cash was given to the group by Hertsmere deputy mayor Peter Knell and councillor Tugay Sevincli, through Hertsmere Borough Council’s Ward Improvement Initiative Scheme (WIIS).
Under the scheme, residents and groups can apply to their ward councillors with a bid for cash to improve the area they live in.
Cllr Knell, who represents Furzefield ward, pledged his entire �2,000 allowance to the scouts, towards general repairs and replacement toilets, washbasins and windows.

Group scout leader Nigel Hickson said: “The group has been going for 100 years and we have more than 45 boy and girl members.
“We work hard to raise our own funds and our leaders are all volunteers so the money is gratefully received and will make a big difference to our facilities.”
