Hythe Sea Scouts launched an appeal in September 2016 to raise £80,000 for vital sea defences. e group, which is home to dozens of Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, faced the prospect of losing its base on the edge of Southampton Water as foreshore erosion threatened to wash the building away. e site is owned by New Forest District Council, although the Sea Scouts are responsible for the upkeep of the land and buildings. e Shore Road site has been home to the group since 1976, with youngsters enjoying a variety of activities including sailing, camping and orienteering. Chris Godfrey, Chairman of the Sea Scouts’ fundraising committee, said: “We’ve finally done it, we’ve raised the £80,000 needed to complete the foreshore protection works. Thank you to the local community, businesses, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, parents and helpers who have supported us to get here. We are truly overwhelmed.” e Sea Scouts began work on the new sea defences last summer, spending more than half of the fundraising target on completing phase one of the foreshore works.
