Brick scheme launched to raise funds for new scout hut
Bears Rails - site of many scouting events

A hut in Windsor Great Park used by generations of scouts needs a £90,000 rebuild.

The Bears Rails campsite in Crimp Hill, Old Windsor has hosted camps, sleepovers and activity weeks.

But now the Dyson Hut at its centre is subsiding and although £50,000 has been donated towards a rebuild, another £40,000 is still needed.

The 'new brick scheme' has now been launched towards this.

Supporters are invited to have a brick inscribed with their own, their family's or scout group's name on the two walls flanking the new hut's fireplace when it is built.

David Shaw, scout leader and chamber member, is confident the new hut can be built.

He said: "We do have a large number of outstanding grant applications. So with some luck this project should be finished by the end of the year."

Inscribed bricks cost just £40 - or £75 if directly above the fireplace.
