The 1st Eye Scout Group have officially opened their new £140,000 hut as the grand culmination to a five-year fundraising effort.
Money was raised through a combination of increased membership numbers, community events, grants and donations, enabling the group to replace their previous building, which had become run down having first opened around 50 years ago.
The new hut contains a large hall, meeting room and other facilities and is intended to be used by community groups and for special events, in addition to scout activities.
In order to further our campaign to improve the historic Eye Town Centre, county Councillor Guy McGregor attended a meeting today at Suffolk CC HQ @ Endeavour House.
We are pleased to report that the Policy Development has accepted our representation and will be recommending that a 20 mph maximum Speed Limit Zone be set up. The Zone will cover most of the Conservation Area of the Town Centre.
Guy McGregor said “ This is a part of the Campaign to make Eye Town Centre and even more attractive place to shop and to do business. Many of our excellent shops deserve a higher footfall. Other improvements to the built environment will follow”.
Issues over the boundary of a proposed neighbourhood plan in Eye have stalled its progress.
Eye Town Council formally agreed to set up a Neighbourhood Development Plan Team, charged with forming a plan, in January. An application was subsequently made to Mid Suffolk District Council in February.
Weight Watchers members in Eye have managed to raise £500 for charity go Diabetes UK after a sponsored walk through the town.
The group, made up of all ages, walked distances of between one and five miles through the town also raised a further £200 through a clothes sale and baking day. Well done to all involved!
