September 2019 Lisvane Link By HilaryAshton on 22nd September 2019 (updated 12th January 2020) In News, Uncategorized / 0 comments UPGRADE OF LIVSEY SCOUT HALL This process, that started approx. 13 months ago, with external wall insulation being applied to the outside of the Scout hall in Llanishen, is nearly finished. We have undertaken a big list of renovations, including a new heating system, extra wiring, moving storage cupboards, new roof ladder, sanding and varnishing floor and full decoration of all areas. Photos next month when fully completed. There is also a list of things we would like to complete in the near future, which includes a patio, porch over front door, new disabled entrance, new drainage on the driveway, shower and sound system. With the new hot tub, we will be able to let it as a luxury pad on Airbnb (joking!). Huge thanks to those Leaders and Parents who have given their time up to make this happen. It has been a difficult time, trying to fit the upgrade around running our sections, fundraising and taking into account when the hall is being used. GRAND OPENING OF LIVSEY HALL AND SUMMER RAFFLE This fabulous and fun event happened Saturday 29th June, when the Scout Hall was nearly completed. The weather was good, the BBQ was tasty, the raffle prizes were never ending, the music was good, (provided by The Nobodies) and the drinks were cold. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Thanks to John Lancaster, who was a Scout in the Group for many years and is now a Councillor in Llanishen, who officially cut the ribbon, shook the champagne and opened Livsey Hall. We discovered that the date chosen was the 60th anniversary of the original official opening of Livsey Scout Hall in 1959. YOUR SCOUT GROUP NEEDS YOU!
