An Exmouth scout group is to receive a financial boost, thanks to a new district council initiative.
East Devon District Council has announced that 5th Exmouth Sea Scouts will receive £2,430 of funding towards its rent over the next five years, as part of the council’s rent support grant scheme, brought in to assist its sports and activity club tenants. The scouts were one of three successful applicants, along with Seaton Bowling Club and Honiton’s Mountbatten Park Sports and Social Club.
Councillor Ian Thomas said: “We wanted to give a helping hand to our club tenants that are most in need, while being transparent and accountable for public funding.”
