A scout group will be able to prevent their hall crumbling to the floor after a donation from two county councillors.

Councillors Robert Calcutt and Peter Knell pulled some of their Ward Improvement Scheme to give 1st Little Heath and Potters Bar Scout Group £1,000 towards the upkeep of the building.

Amanda Caswell, volunteer for the scout group, said: “The money will help us pay for small repairs to the building to help keep it going for as long as possible.

"We are the oldest scout group in Potters Bar with the hut in use since 1922 so the idea is to preserve it whilst we raise funds to eventually rebuild it.  We thank local councillors for their contribution."
