We have just been told that the playgroup rooms that our Rainbows have been meeting at for 25 years are not going to be available from September, so we will need to find somewhere new! Panic stations!!! The playgroup is being taken over by a Stepping Stones nursery, and they are planning after-school clubs so hall would not be available until 6.45pm, too late for a Rainbow start. We are investigating whether the primary school will let us have use of a mobile classroom, but they've never been keen before as it would involve either giving us keys or paying the caretaker to lock up after us (although new Head teacher so fingers crossed!) and the village hall is out as it doesn't have a regular night that is free. We have made enquiries with the Scouts about using ther hut before (when there was building work at the playgroup) but they also weren't keen (I don't know why, we're very nice!) I know the Scout leader and he's a bit of an awkward so-and-so (to put it nicely) and he spouted something about their insurance not covering it, think this was just because he didn't want the hassle. So...my question is two-fold: 1. Does anyone meet at a Scout Hut? How does it work in regards to insurance/rent/maintenance duties? 2. Does anyone meet somewhere not mentioned above? We run in a very small rural village, so I can't think of any other public buildings - but maybe I'm missing something obvious? Any help/ideas gratefully received!
