Facilities for Hire

We have two bases that our Scout group uses. Our land headquarters, Lilac Grove and our river base, Barton Island.

Our Lilac Grove headquarters is typically only used for Scout meetings, but we also have an onsite workshop we use to renovate our fleet of boats. The facilities of the main building are basic; a small kitchen and male and female toilets. It can seat approximately 50 people. It is usually available to hire on Wednesday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays. Week day day-time hire is a possibility.

Barton Island is our unique facility for water-based activities and camping. Located on the River Trent near Attenborough nature reserve, it is also a fantastic wild life haven. It is equipped 2 landing stages, a large storm shelter and huts suitable for small groups of children to sleep in. The island is also equipped with basic toilet facilities. Please note there is no running water or mains electricity on Barton Island. You can find out more about Barton Island here.
