Follow-up inspections are carried out every 18 months by a serving Royal Navy Officer and all members of the 4th New Forest East Sea Scouts proudly wear the Royal Navy Recognition Badge. The group, which is made up of Leaders, Explorers, Scouts and Cubs, hold their meetings at the Scout Hut located on Shore Road, Hythe, next to the old US base. Last year Hythe Sea Scouts were given planning permission by the district council to carry out vital work needed to prevent their club HQ from being swept away by the sea. The site is under threat from erosion caused by storms and the wash from passing ships. An appeal was launched to finance coastal defence work, which will cost in the region of £80,000. The money raised so far has gone some way towards realising this figure, but the fundraising appeal needs all the help it can get to prevent the integrity of this building from being severely threatened. New Forest/Waterside U3A (University of the Third Age) decided to support this vital maintenance work, which is already underway. The U3A raised £228 through a raffle held at their Christmas lunch at South Lawn Hotel, Milford- on-Sea. Raffle prizes were generously donated by local businesses in the Hythe and New Forest area. A cheque Carol Hathaway and Judy Vincent, Joint Raffle Organisers, Marilyn Wheelband, U3A Committee & Christmas Lunch Organiser and Peter Dudley, Chairman, New Forest/Waterside U3A, present the cheque to Kate Horne, Cub Leader and Chris Godfrey, Fundraising Chairman together with Cub Scouts and their leaders. was presented to the Hythe Sea Scouts at a Cub Scouts meeting last month.
