RYE Scout’s new headquarters is taking shape.

Work is now being carried out on the interior of the new building at the Grove in Rye.

Rye Scouts Group leader William Perfitt said: “We have progressed a long way with the new building but still need to raise funds.

The Scouts are holding a fund raising Fair in the grounds of the new building, next door to Rye Sports Centre.

It takes place on Saturday October 5 from 10am - 3pm.

People will have an opportunity to see how the building has progressed and there will be a barbecue and refreshments, a cake stall, tombola, a china smash, book stall and fun games.

First Rye Scouts is one of the oldest Scout troops in the movement.

Their old building became stranded in the middle of a busy car park when the Rye sports centre was built.
