Ward grant report from the 2nd Acomb Scout Group
2nd Acomb Scout Group received a ward grant from Westfield Ward in 2016-17 to pay for the multimedia equipment for entertainment nights.
The applicant reported as follows:
''The grant has enabled us to purchase new equipment to run our family movie nights. These are proving more popular and our members are encouraged to bring their friends to the events whether they are members of the scout association or not.
We have installed new projector equipment which has been used at our Annual General Meeting and during our weekly meetings, where appropriate. This enables us to use modern technology to help our young people earn their badges, and for us to explore other ideas with the use of educational and fun videos.
This has had a big impact on our community as we have the ability to do more and show more. It also provides the opportunity for the scouts to create digital items and then show the group as a whole instead of on a small monitor.''
60 members and their families benefited directly from the project.
