Hut Transformation in 2001 Sandford Scout Group closed, as the years went by hut became unusable. In 2010 in what decided to create a new Explorer Unit, from that Sandford Hut was re-opened and a transformation was started. Prior to the following photos, the hut was gutted and plaster boards found and put up onto the walls. A new kitchen or a recycled kitchen was found and installed alongwith 2 new toilets. In January 2011 we moved in, although the hut was still a H&S nightmare, we made do and started redecorating with the help of various members of the Unit and District.
