Building a Future for 2nd Warwick

Our new HQ Initiative

Our aim is to continue to be one of the best Royal Navy Recognised Groups in the country, offering the best scouting experience to more local youngsters, whilst supporting our local community.

To do this we need a new larger meeting place as our current hut is in a bad state of repair.

It will also allow us to open up a new Beaver and Cub pack and expand our Scouts and Explorers. A new HQ will build our future by:

    • Providing a larger meeting place for and allow us to open new Beaver and Cub packs

    • Increasing the number of youngsters who can join in, whilst providing the best possible scouting experience

    • Providing a new community resource in a central, strategic location in Warwick

    • Guaranteeing the future of the only local Sea Scout Group in Warwick and one of the best in the country

    • Providing for youngsters with disabilities

We have secured planning for a 3 phase project, having completed phase 1 in Nov 2018 and now just need £20k to fully fund our new HQ Build!

Phase 1: Renovate/extend our jetties (£125k) and build a new boatyard (£30k) - during 2018 - Work completed Nov 2018.

Phase 2: Build a new HQ Building next to the St Nicholas Leisure Centre in Warwick. Shell Target Dec 2020 (£720k)

Phase 3: Renovate our current hut into a riverside boathouse.

The new HQ facility will have one large main hall, a training room, boat maintenance room, equipment storage, toilets, changing rooms, kitchen and access to suit anybody with physical disabilities.

So far, we have raised over £850k from our own fundraising, local companies and trusts to fully fund our Jetty Re-development and nearly all of the building of the shell of our new HQ.

We broke ground on our new HQ building in 2020, but urgently need to raise our final funds to complete the build and then fit out the new building - read more about our ground-breaking!
