Liberal Nationals to support Cranbourne Scouts

With population out of control under Daniel Andrews, our scout and guide halls are being neglected and failing to keep up with local population growth.

Our scouts deserve better and that’s why an elected Liberal Nationals Government will contribute $200,000 in matched funding together with Scouts Victoria towards the upgrade of the Cranbourne 1st Scouts Hall.

This funding, to be matched by Scouts Victoria for a grand total of $400,000 for this facility, will be used for repair work including to bitumen the car park, and replace the kitchen and bathrooms.

Scouts groups provide huge value to children across the world including providing a team environment in which to learn and grow, boost a sense of community and form close bonds with their fellow scouts and scout leaders.

Despite Labor being in power for 15 of the last 19 years, Daniel Andrews and Labor have neglected the Montague Park Scout Hall’s current building.

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Young Victorians, Steph Ryan:

“The Liberal Nationals want to support scouts and guides because they give young people great skills for life.

Ann-Marie has been working with her local scouts groups to help improve their facilities and encourage young people in the community to get involved.”

Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Cranbourne, Ann-Marie Hermans:

“I’m proud to be part of a Liberal Nationals’ team which is getting back in control of population growth in our area and providing the very best facilities for local scouts.

This funding will help local scouts to continue their outstanding work in supporting, training and mentoring our local youth.”
