Councillor Povey donated a grant of £1,000 from his members allowance towards the installation of new fascias and soffits at the Girlguiding Hall in Village Way, Cranleigh. The repairs were needed to keep the hall safe.
Councillor Povey comments: “I am very pleased to obtain this funding from the county council for the Girlguides. The Guides provide wonderful opportunities to children to enhance their development.”
Sue Whitaker, Girlguiding District Commissioner for Cranleigh says: “As a charity, we rely on donations and we’re very grateful for the generous grant as well as £500 from Cranleigh Parish Council. The donations have allowed us to get these repairs done before the colder and wetter weather set in.”
The hall is used by all seven Girlguiding units and it also available for hire for organisations, clubs, children’s parties and functions.
Girlguiding offers girls as young as five the opportunity to be independent, learn new skills, gain confidence, make new friends and have fun.
The charity offers all girls the chance to take part in a wide and varied programme, incorporating everything from world issues, science to adventure sports and international travel.
