Speaking to the Gazette, group leader Martin Stanworth said: "We are trying to provide fun, adventure and excitement to children every week and it’s difficult to do this in an urban environment, so now we can improve the grounds and the headquarters so that we will be able to provide more excitement and fun to more children in Eastcote."
