Clontarf Beach Scouts have a new den to call home thanks to funding from Moreton Bay Regional Council and the Federal Government.
The den replaces a building that was susceptible to flooding and includes ease of access for people with disabilities, a large activity room and kitchen.
Mayor Peter Flannery says the $1 million facility will help nurture the leaders of tomorrow, made possible with a $467,687 contribution from the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
“As a father of a young daughter who’s almost old enough to start Scouts, I know how important it is to instil those leadership and teamwork qualities from a young age,” he says.
“Clontarf Beach Scouts’ old building was prone to regular flooding during heavy rain so they’ll be thrilled to see their new flood-free home.
“The new space boasts a large veranda area, a kitchen, disability access, a PWD (people with disability) compliant unisex toilet and shower, an open activities room and much more.
“Kids will have more room for activities and the branch can cater for new members who want to join.”
