Scout hut given some TLC from Mears

Local firm Mears spent an entire week turning the run down 260th Scout Hut on Spring Road into a venue to be proud of.

Before the face lift the scout hut looked worse for wear with paint peeling from the walls and doors barely working.

That's when Mears stepped in, who provide responsive repairs to over 16,000 homes on behalf of Birmingham City Council. They donated Gary and Carlton the carpenters and Tom the plasterer who worked on the project for an entire week bringing it up to a standard sure to attract new scouts. Rooms were completely re-plastered and painted with new doors and a gleaming new floor to top it off.

Phil Ross, Partnering Manager Mears Birmingham said "I was very pleased that we were able to support such a worthwhile project. The skilled operatives were made available to improve the appearance of the Scout Hut and enjoyed their contribution to the community"

Sue Weake, Scout Hut Leader said "Thanks to the skills of the craftsmen and the kind donation from Mears, we were able to turn an useable area into a pleasant environment for the young people to use. We are very grateful."
