First Nuthall Scouts have received a £1,000 boost from a local councillor, as our photo shows.

Cllr Philip Owen donated the money out of his Notts County Council divisional fund.

The group’s headquarters in Back Lane had a major re-fit last year and group chairman Paul Simpson said the money would go towards improving the premises further, paying for running costs and ‘providing for the youth of the community’.

“We are very grateful,” he said.
