The contract has been let for the installation of the security fence around the entrance area of the Shack. This consists of pierced steel supports with vertical rods and a double fold back door to allow entry to the portico. After this is set up, then the brick paving will be replaced by a concrete floor. We will also run some underground conduit to allow an internet connection to be provided so that the security system that will be installed is able to notify us of intrusions and allow the installation of remote cameras as well.
This has met with the full approval of the GG CEO, and will assure our tenancy of the site for at least the next 5 years.
The GG movement is trying to get some more activity for the Hall, and is looking at combining other GG & Scout activities at the site, the storage shed will probably be revamped / repaired at some stage, although there are some issues with keys that have to be straightened out. So far, there has been very little vandalism at the site, probably because of the winter temperatures, but a small amount of graffiti still occurs from time to time, which is painted out as soon as possible, tags being photographed and made
available to the Sturt Police.
