Jessopp Road is a beautiful green space near the centre of Norwich. It is ideal for children's parties, outdoor small events and of course welcomes Scouts and other youth organisations. You can hire the space for indoor or outdoor events. Hire by the hour, half day, full day or multiple bookings.
We welcome bookings from individuals, groups and charities to use this spot of tranquility in the heart of Norwich.
We are excited and delighted to share with you that we have secured a massive grant to replace our dilapidated buildings with a brand-new facility. The grant of £915,609.00, from the Youth Investment fund will pay for a purpose-built sustainable Scout and community hub.
The log cabin building will be fully accessible, carbon neutral, and open to outside community groups. It will give us the chance to double the number of young people who can join in Scouting and also open the venue to more community groups.
A dedicated group of volunteers has been scrabbling about for small pots of money for 5 years but by Christmas 2024 we will have a new venue will create a true legacy for 33rd Norwich Scout Group, our local community and importantly many generations of young people to come.
The grant is part of the government’s Youth Investment Fund. Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer said: “I want every young person to have the opportunity to access the kinds of life-changing activities which expand their horizons and allow them to develop vital life skills.”
Andrew Parle, Lead Volunteer could not be more excited: “A dedicated group of volunteers has been scrabbling about for small pots of money for 5 years and working with an incredibly generous set of suppliers locally that we are very grateful too. But thanks to the Youth Investment Fund grant we will have a fantastic new facility. It will create a true legacy for 33rd Norwich Scout Group and our local community.”
Whilst this amazing fund will build a new facility it doesn’t include fixtures like tables, chairs etc so we are launching a fundraising/donation target of £10,000 (33rd Norwich Scout Group | Wonderful.org) We are also starting an appeal for more volunteers to help create these extra spaces.
